Should thereafter said nuisance not be abated at the expiration of time stated in said notice or such additional time as the Building Inspector or the hearing officers provided for in Section 1357.03 may grant them, the Building Inspector shall have the right to enter upon said premises and to abate the nuisance found thereon. In abating such nuisance he may go to whatever extent may be necessary to complete the abatement of same and should it be practicable to sell or salvage any material derived in the aforesaid abatement, he may sell the same at private or public sale at the best price obtainable and shall keep an account of the proceeds thereof. Such proceeds, if any, shall be deposited in the General Fund of the City of Brooklyn and any difference between the amount so received and the cost of the abatement shall be levied as an assessment against the aforesaid property, by the Council of the City of Brooklyn, certified to the Auditor of Cuyahoga County, Ohio, and collected as any other assessment by the City of Brooklyn. Should the proceeds of the sale of such salvaged material exceed the cost of such abatement, the overplus, if any, shall be paid to the owner of the premises from which such nuisance was abated when his proper claim therefor is established. In abating such nuisance the Building Inspector of the City of Brooklyn, for whatever assistance may be necessary, may call upon other departments of the City of Brooklyn; or may by private contract obtain the abatement thereof, if such private contract may be let without any expense whatever to the City of Brooklyn.
