Section 9-9-80

Construction of article; effect of defect in proceedings upon collection of assessments or functioning of subdistrict; remedies provided in article exclusive.

The provisions of this article shall be liberally construed to promote the declared purposes thereof. The collection of any assessment or assessments or the desirable functioning of a subdistrict shall not be defeated when the notices authorized by this article have been given by reason of any defect in the proceedings accruing prior to the order of the county commission establishing the subdistrict or approving the assessments; but such order or orders shall be conclusive and final that all prior proceedings were regular and according to law, unless they were appealed from and finally held to be unlawful. Failure to appeal from the order or orders of the county commission within the time specified shall be a waiver of any illegality in the proceedings, and the remedies provided for in this article shall exclude all other remedies.
