The mailing shall be completed at least ten days before the date the installment is due. In addition to the requirements of subsection B of this section, the notice shall include the improvement district's name, the amount of the installment on the parcel then due and the date that the property will be put up for sale if the installment is not paid when due.

C. The board of directors may provide a more detailed notice. The mailing of notice provided for in this section shall apply to and govern all bonds and assessments issued and levied, and all notices of special assessments due on improvements shall be mailed as prescribed by this section.
