Pursuant to the authority contained in NMSA § 4-50-2, the Doña Ana County Assessor is hereby directed to annually assess a tax at a rate of $1.50, or any lower maximum amount required by operation of the rate limitation provisions of NMSA § 7-37-7.1, upon a tax imposed under NMSA § 4-50-2, on each $1,000 of net taxable value, as that term is defined in the Property Tax Code (Articles 35 to 38 of Chapter 7, NMSA), on all the herein-described taxable property located within five miles of both sides of any river or stream which contributes to or is subject to flood conditions destructive to property or dangerous to human life, and that the Doña Ana County Treasurer is hereby directed to collect such tax. Such tax shall be assessed, levied and collected as other taxes are collected, and when so collected shall be known as the "County flood fund," and such fund shall be maintained in such a manner as to keep separate records of all flood control taxes collected from each stream or river drainage area. The taxes collected shall only be used and disbursed for flood control projects in the drainage area for which they were assessed in accordance with the provisions of NMSA §§ 4-50-1 through 4-50-9, and shall not be transferred to any other fund or purpose.
