24-649. Same; how funds secured by trustees; tax levy. In order to provide ready money with which to pay the expenses and indebtedness incurred by them, the board of trustees are authorized to borrow money, not in excess of twenty-five cents for each acre within the district and thereby bind such district to repay the same. To provide funds to repay the money borrowed, if any be borrowed, and to pay all other indebtedness incurred by the board of trustees in concluding the affairs of such drainage district, the land within such district, without regard to its value or the improvements thereon, shall be taxed in the following manner:

The board of trustees on or before August 1 of any year may certify to the board of county commissioners of any county in which said drainage district or any part thereof is situated, the amount of money such board of trustees deem it advisable to raise by taxing such land that year, together with a description of all the real estate in such county and within such drainage district, and such board of county commissioners shall levy equally upon each acre of land within such drainage district, a tax sufficient to raise the amount so certified. Such tax shall be levied and collected as other taxes and if not paid the land thus taxed may be sold as upon failure to pay other taxes. As such tax is collected, it shall be paid by the county treasurer to the treasurer of such board of trustees. The board of trustees may require their treasurer to give such bond as they deem necessary to secure the safety of such funds. The board may pay out such funds upon allowance by the board, upon the order of the treasurer countersigned by the chairman of the board.
