SECTION 45-48-10

   § 45-48-10  Taxes – Assessments –

Penalty for nonpayment. –

The qualified voters of the district, at any of the meetings of the district,

have power to order taxes, and provide for assessing and collecting the taxes

on the ratable real estate and tangible personal property of the district, as

it deems necessary for the purpose of obtaining and maintaining a supply of

water and distributing the water for the extinguishing of fire; for power,

domestic, and other uses; for establishing and maintaining and constructing

water works and driving wells, and operating the water works and wells; for

acquiring and leasing real estate and other property and property rights

necessary for a water supply, and laying and maintaining pipes, conduits,

aqueducts, and other structures connected with them, and purchasing implements,

machinery, and other appliances; for the payment of the current expenses of the

district; for the payment of officers, employees, and other agents as the

district is authorized to elect, appoint, or otherwise choose under this

chapter; and for the payment of any indebtedness that has been or may be

incurred by the district; and the taxes so ordered shall be assessed by the

assessors of the district on the taxable inhabitants and the property in the

district according to the last valuation made by the assessors of the district

on the taxable inhabitants and the property in the district according to the

last valuation made by the assessors of the town next previous to the

assessment, adding, however, any taxable property which may have been omitted

by the town assessors or afterwards acquired, and in all cases where the town

assessors have included property within and without the district in one

valuation, the assessors of the district shall make an equitable valuation of

that portion of the property lying within the district; and in the assessing

and collecting of the taxes proceedings shall be had by the officers of the

district, as near as may be, as are required to be held by the corresponding

officers of towns in assessing and collecting town taxes; and the collector of

taxes for the district shall, for the purpose of collecting taxes assessed by

the district, have the same powers and authority as are now by law conferred on

collectors of taxes for towns in this state. The district may provide for a

deduction, from the tax assessed against any person if paid by an appointed

time, or for a penalty, by way of percentage on the tax if not paid at the

appointed time, not exceeding twelve percent (12%) per annum, as it deems

necessary to insure punctual payment; provided, that the tax assessed in any

one year under the provisions of this section shall not exceed ten (10) mills

on each dollar of the valuation.
