(1) Before an assessment for a local improvement is levied, the finance officer shall dispatch by certified mail to each owner whose parcel of real property is to be subject to the assessment a notice stating:

(a) The description of the parcel of real property to be subject to the proposed assessment.

(b) A general description of the project and a description of the kind of improvement for which the proposed assessment is to be made.

(c) The amount of the proposed assessment.

(d) When the assessment is approved by the council it will become a lien against the described parcel if it is not paid within a specified time.

(e) The time and place of the public hearing on the proposed assessment.

(f) That the owner is requested to attend the hearing and there comment on the proposed assessment, that any owner who intends to comment on the proposed assessment must notify the city engineer of that intent by 5 p.m. on the third business day before the hearing date, and that failure to do so forfeits the owner’s right to comment at the hearing.

(2) The notice required by subsection 7.185(1) shall be dispatched at least 10 days before the hearing to the owner’s address as known to the finance officer or, if not so known, as indicated on current records of the Lane County Assessor; and shall also be posted on a bulletin board at city hall at least ten days before the hearing.

(3) The finance officer shall keep a record of the notices mailed and posted and of receipts indicating delivery of the notices to the property owners.
