Section 11-88-51

Levy of assessments for cost of improvement on abutting or benefited property authorized.

If any such improvement be finally ordered and constructed, the board shall have power, after the completion and acceptance thereof, to assess the cost of constructing the said improvement or any part thereof upon or against the property abutting on any street, avenue, alley, highway, or other public place so served or drained or against the property drained, served, or benefited by such improvement to the extent of the increased value of such property by reason of the special benefits derived from such improvement.

An authority shall have the power to assess for the cost of improvements any lot or lots, parcel or parcels of land purchased by the State of Alabama at any sale for the nonpayment of taxes and where any such assessment is made against such lot or lots, parcel or parcels of land, a subsequent redemption thereof by any person authorized to redeem or sale thereof by the state shall not operate to discharge or in any manner affect the lien of such authority for such assessment, but any redemptioner or purchaser at any sale by the state of any lot or lots, parcel or parcels of land upon which an assessment has been levied, whether prior to or subsequent to a sale to the state for the nonpayment of taxes, shall take the same subject to such assessment.
