§ 45-59-17. Collection of assessments.
The assessments made by any district management authority will be collected by the tax collector of the municipality within which the management district is located for the account of the district management authority. The assessments so collected will not be commingled with funds of the municipality and forthwith upon their collection will be remitted to the district management authority. Assessments will be a lien on the real property of the persons against whom the assessments are made in the same manner as taxes assessed by a municipality under § 44-9-1. Tax collectors of municipalities within which management districts are created will have the same powers with respect to assessments and their collection as are granted to them by chapter 9 of title 44 of the general laws with respect to municipal property taxes except that these powers will be exercised for and on behalf of the district management authority.
