    Sec. 5-23. Collection of original and additional assessments-Notice.
    The collector of any drainage district, upon receiving a certified copy of the original or any additional assessment roll, shall collect promptly all assessments, installments and interest as the same become due and payable. Before any such assessment, installment or interest becomes due and payable, the collector shall mail to the owner of the property, when known, and, if not known, then to the person in whose name the property is assessed as shown by the assessment roll, a statement containing a brief description of the property assessed, the amount of any assessment, installment and interest to be collected, the date when such assessment, installment and interest are due and payable, and the person to whom and the place where such assessment, installment and interest are payable. Assessments, installments and interest may be collected and the collection thereof enforced in any manner provided by law, even though such statement is not mailed or received. As the assessments are collected, the collector shall pay the same over to the treasurer of the district.
