    The assessment as extended shall be collected in the same manner as the original assessment.
    When this petition is filed it shall be presented to the court and if found to be in proper form the court shall set the petition for hearing at such date as will enable the clerk of the court to give at least 10 days' notice of the hearing thereon, and it is the duty of the clerk to publish a notice at least twice, not more than 30 nor less than 15 days before the date set for hearing, in one or more newspapers published in the municipality, or, if no newspaper is published therein, then in one or more newspapers with a general circulation within the municipality. In municipalities with less than 500 population in which no newspaper is published, publication may instead be made by posting a notice in 3 prominent places within the municipality. This notice shall set forth the filing of the petition, the docket and warrant number of the assessment and the installment or installments thereof proposed to be extended and the number of installments in which it is proposed to divide the extended assessment. The notice shall also state when and where the court will hear objections to the petition.
    At this hearing the court may extend the time of payment of one or more installments of the assessment, change the number of installments in which the assessment is divided, and subject to the provisions of Sections 9-2-120 through 9-2-124, provide for the details of the issuance of the refunding securities, in accordance with the prayer of the petition, and enter an order confirming the assessment as extended.
    Any property owner may pay the original assessment or any installment to be extended within 10 days after the entry of such an order. Upon the expiration of 10 days after the entry of such an order the corporate authorities shall issue the refunding securities authorized by the order of the court, but the delivery of the refunding securities shall be simultaneous with the surrender of the securities to be refunded or paid. The securities so surrendered shall be immediately cancelled. The collection and payment of the extended assessment and the securities issued under Sections 9-2-120 through 9-2-124 shall be in the manner as now provided by law.
