Charges for weed cutting shall be a lien upon the real property. Whenever a bill for weed cutting remains unpaid, the Village Clerk, or the person performing the service by authority of the village, shall file with the County Recorder of Deeds within 60 days after the expense is incurred a notice of lien in the name of the village or in the name of the person performing the service. The notice of lien shall consist of a sworn statement setting forth the legal description of the real property and a common address sufficient for identification thereof; the amount of the cost and expense incurred or payable for the removal of the weeds; and the date or dates when such cost and expense was incurred by the village. The failure of the Village Clerk to mail the lien notice or record the notice or the failure of the owner to receive such notice shall not affect the right to foreclose the lien, as provided for in the following section. Expenses shall include but not be limited to the expenses of the cutting and removal, service and filing expenses and reasonable attorney's fees.
