Sec. 14A-13. Same _ Assessment and collection of costs.
The council shall, after such hearing as provided in Section 14A-11, return its confirmed report to the director of finance, with instructions to collect the total costs of removal by billing the property owner(s). If such costs are not paid, the director of finance shall have the costs entered upon the assessment roll under an appropriate head, to be collected at the same time and in the same manner as ordinary municipal taxes are collected, and shall be subject to the same penalties and the same procedure under foreclosure for sale and in case of delinquency as provided for in ordinary municipal taxes; or, if such costs are not paid, the council may, at its option, by resolution, order that all of the costs of removal, as shown in the confirmed report, shall constitute liens upon the property from which such removal was made, and direct the director of finance to record a certified copy of such resolution in the office of the recorder of the county of Monterey. The city attorney shall thereupon proceed to foreclose each of such liens and to collect all of the amounts owing to the city in the manner provided by law. (Ord. No. 1935 (NCS), § 2.)
