SECTION 15-1959
Corrections and revisions of assessments, determinations of drainage enhancements and apportionment of costs
Environmental Conservation (ENV) CHAPTER 43-B, ARTICLE 15, TITLE 19
§ 15-1959. Corrections and revisions of assessments, determinations of

drainage enhancements and apportionment of costs.

1. In the event that obvious errors or discrepancies should be
discovered in any assessment, determination of drainage enhancements or
general or special apportionments of cost, the department may correct
the same by filing corrected copies of the statement of such assessment,
determination or apportionments and following the procedure specified in
title 19 of this article.

2. Should such corrections be made, the county legislative body is
empowered to levy additional sums on or to give credit to certain
parcels to the end that the amount collected from each parcel shall be
what it should have been had an error not been made. The county
legislative body is also empowered to apply to the department for an
adjustment of assessments among the various parts into which an original
parcel may have subdivided.

3. The department shall file and record its findings in such cases as
amendments to the original or corrected assessments, and shall give
notice to the parties affected, but need hold no hearing thereon unless
such hearing be demanded by a party affected within ten days after
notice is given.

4. None of the above proceedings shall be held to reopen a
determination of enhancements or an apportionment of cost, except as to
the particular matter involved. Should the department at any time find
that a former assessment, determination or apportionment appears with
the lapse of time or in the light of new knowledge and experience to
have become inequitable, it may so declare by written order and proceed
to review the whole matter by following the full procedure laid down in
whichever one of the following sections is appropriate: 15-1919,
15-1925, 15-1937 or 15-1939.
