Section 9.3 LIENS.
   The tax levied by the City is hereby declared to be a lien, charge, or encumbrance upon the property upon which the tax is due, which lien, charge, or encumbrance the City is entitled to enforce and foreclose in any court having jurisdiction over the same, or in any other manner now or hereafter provided by the Constitution and laws of the State of Texas, and the lien, charge, and encumbrance on the property in favor of the City for the amount of the taxes due on such property is such as to give the State courts jurisdiction to enforce and foreclose said lien on the property on which the tax is due, not only as against any resident of this State or person whose residence is unknown, but also as against the unknown heirs of any person who owns the property upon which the tax is due and also as against nonresidents. All taxes upon real estate shall especially be a lien and a charge upon the property upon which the taxes are due, which lien may be foreclosed in any court having jurisdiction.
