of facilities purposes for the next ensuing year. Such amounts shall be

December, annually. The certificate shall be signed by the chairman and
secretary, and may be in the following form:

An amended certificate may be filed by the community college board within

received by the district from either local or State sources.
A failure by the board to file the certificate with the county clerk in
the time required shall not vitiate the assessment.
