C.R.S. Section 37-5-107
Maintenance fund


To maintain, operate, and preserve the improvements made pursuant to articles 1 to 8 of this title, and to strengthen, repair, and restore the same when needed, and for the purpose of defraying the current expenses of the district, the board of directors may, upon the substantial completion of said improvements, or any unit thereof, and on or before the first Monday in November in each year thereafter, levy an assessment on each tract or parcel of land and upon public corporations, subject to assessments under articles 1 to 8 of this title, to be known as the “maintenance fund assessment”. Said maintenance fund assessment shall be apportioned upon the basis of the total appraisal of benefits accruing for original and subsequent construction and shall not exceed one percent thereof in any one year, unless the court shall by its order authorize an assessment of a larger percentage.


Said assessment shall be levied by resolution of the board of directors, shall be enrolled in the “maintenance fund assessment record” provided for in this article (Schedule Form VIII, 2), shall be certified to the treasurers of the several counties in which lands so assessed are situated, and shall be collected by the treasurers of said counties and delivered to the treasurer of the district in like manner and with like effect provided for the enrollment, certification, collection, and return of other assessments set forth in said articles; except that no such maintenance assessment shall be payable in annual installments, but the whole assessment shall be due and payable as and when taxes for county purposes levied in the same year are due and payable.


The amount of the maintenance assessment paid by any parcel of land shall not be credited against the benefits appraised against such parcel of land; but the maintenance assessment shall be in addition to any assessment that has been or can be levied against the benefits so appraised.
