The lien of an assessment or any installment thereof shall continue for two years from date of passage of the resolution under section 6119.52 or 6119.58 of the Revised Code, and no longer, unless the regional water and sewer district, before the expiration of such time, causes it to be certified to the county auditor for entry upon the tax list and duplicate, for collection, or causes the proper action to be commenced in a court having jurisdiction thereof, to enforce the lien against such lots or lands, in which case the lien shall continue in force so long as the assessment or any installment thereof remains on the tax list uncollected, or so long as the action is pending, and any judgment obtained under and by virtue thereof remains in force and unsatisfied.
If an action for the recovery of an assessment is commenced within due time, and a judgment therein for the plaintiff is reversed, or if the plaintiff fails in such action otherwise than upon the merits and the time limited for the action has expired, a new action may be commenced within one year after such reversal or failure.
A court of common pleas shall have the jurisdiction authorized by Chapter 6119. of the Revised Code for the collection of any charge or debt or the enforcement of any lien, notwithstanding the amount involved is less than that to which the jurisdiction is limited in other cases. Such court may make such special rules concerning the class of cases authorized to be brought under such chapter as will tend to expedite the disposition and prevent unnecessary costs.
