When any expense shall have been incurred by the city upon or in respect to any single premises, which expense is chargeable against said premises and the owner thereof under the provisions of this code of ordinances and § 9.2 of the City Charter and is not of that class required to be pro-rated among the several lots and parcels of land in a special assessment district, an account of the labor, material and services for which such expense was incurred with a description of the premises upon or in respect to which the expense was incurred, and the name of the owner, if known, shall be reported to the Treasurer, who shall immediately charge and bill the owner, if known. The Treasurer at the end of the quarter shall report to the City Council all sums so owing to the city and which have not been paid within 30 days after the mailing of the bill therefor. The Council may, at such time as it may deem advisable direct the Assessor to prepare a special assessment roll covering all such charges reported to it together with a penalty of 10%. As an alternative, the Council may allow property owners to pay a single lot assessment on an installment basis as described in § 33.10 of this chapter; provided, the terms and interest rate of the installment program are specified in the resolution directing the Assessor to prepare the special assessment roll. The special assessment roll shall be filed with the Clerk who shall advise the Council of the filing of the same and the Council shall thereupon set a date for the hearing of objections to such assessment roll.
