(e) If a householder fails to pay the second billing provided for in division (d) of this section by the end of the quarterly service period, the householder or any other person, firm or corporation receiving said service by failing to pay therefore may be duly prosecuted as provided in Section 1060.99; or have said charges along with the penalty become a lien as provided in Section 1060.09; or have said charges be collectible by a civil suit as other debts of like amount are recoverable together with any interest, penalty, collection costs and attorneys' reasonable fees incurred by the City with regards to the collection. The service period shall be the quarter to which the second billing, provided in division (d) of this section, applies.
