If the property owner does not pay the cost of abating the nuisance within thirty calendar days after the cost becomes final or the hearing officer confirms the costs of abatement, or after any decision has become final following an appeal, the cost maybe recorded as a special assessment against the property upon which the nuisance was abated. The assessment shall continue until it is paid, together with interest at the legal maximum rate computed from the date of confirmation of the statement until payment. The assessment may 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 procedures and sale in case of delinquency as provided for ordinary municipal taxes. All acts applicable to levy, collection and enforcement of municipal taxes apply to this special assessment. (Ord. 5622 § 2 (part); October 28, 1997: Ord. 6429 § 8; February 6, 2018.)
