Division 4.5 (commencing with Section 3100) of the Streets and Highways Code applies with respect to any proceedings undertaken pursuant to this chapter. This chapter is a “principal act” as that term is defined in Section 3100 of the Streets and Highways Code. In all cases in which special taxes have been approved by the qualified electors pursuant to this chapter prior to January 1, 1989, the legislative body may direct the clerk of the legislative body to impose a lien for the special tax on nonexempt real property within the district by performing the filings required by Division 4.5 (commencing with Section 3100) of the Streets and Highways Code, and the county recorder shall accept those filings and may charge the clerk a fee for recording and indexing those documents pursuant to Section 3116 of the Streets and Highways Code. The failure of the clerk or recorder to perform the filings shall not subject the local agency or any of its officers or employees to civil liability.
