13-1029.Sewer districts for pumping stations and sewers; assessments and bonds. Cities of the first class may create districts for the purpose of constructing and maintaining pumping stations and main and intercepting sewers, and in creating such districts may include therein the whole or any part of any two or more sewer districts then or theretofore established. The lands which will be especially benefited by the proposed pumping station and sewer or either of them shall constitute such districts, and the boundaries of such districts shall be determined by ordinance. The lots and tracts of land situated in such sewer district shall, regardless of assessments for any pumping station or pumping stations and sewer or sewers theretofore levied thereon, be liable to special assessments for the cost of such pumping stations and sewers, including the cost of acquiring, by condemnation or purchase, lands or any easement or right therein deemed necessary by the governing body for the construction or maintenance of such pumping stations and sewers.

The cost and expense of constructing such sewers and procuring rights of way shall be assessed against the lots or pieces of land contained in the district in which the same are situated, and the special assessment shall be levied by the city and certified by the city clerk to the county clerk, to be placed on the tax rolls for collection, subject to the same penalties and collected in like manner as other taxes. Such city may join with any person, company or corporation owning property adjacent to or adjoining such city, but not within the city, in the construction of such pumping stations and main and intercepting sewers and in acquiring rights of way therefor on such terms and conditions as may be determined on by the governing body of such city. Negotiable bonds may be issued to pay for such pumping stations and sewers, including the cost of lands or any easement or right therein acquired by condemnation or purchase, in the manner provided by law.
