County collectors shall collect, account for, and pay over the same to the authorities or persons having authority to receive the same, in like manner as they are required to collect, account for and pay over taxes. The county collector may, upon return of delinquent special assessments to him, transfer the amounts thereof from such returns to the tax books in his hands setting down therein, opposite the respective tracts, or lots, in proper columns to be prepared for that purpose, the amounts assessed against such tract or lot.

Monday next succeeding the day fixed by law for the commencement of such term of the said County Court, all the lands and lots for the sale of which an order shall be made, will be exposed to public sale at the building where the County Court is held in said county, for the amount of taxes, special assessments, interest and cost due thereon; and the advertisement published according to the provisions to this section shall be deemed to be sufficient notice of the intended application for judgment and of the sale of lands and lots under the order of said court.

All applications for judgment and order of sale for taxes and special assessments on delinquent lands and lots shall be made at the June term of the County Court except in the case of special assessments in cities having a population of one hundred thousand or more by the last preceding census of the United States or of this State. If from any cause the court shall not be holden at the term at which judgment is prayed, the cause shall stand continued, and it shall not be necessary to readvertise the list or notice required by law to be advertised before judgment and sale, but at the next regular term thereafter the court shall hear and determine the matter; and if judgment is rendered the sale shall be made on the Monday specified in the notice as provided in section 182, such Monday to be fixed by the county collector in the notice.
