In any case where the owner, occupant or tenant fails, neglects or refuses to comply with subsection (a) hereof, within the time limit prescribed therein, Borough authorities may proceed immediately to clear all snow and/or ice from the sidewalk of such owner, occupant or tenant and to collect the expenses thereof, with any additional amount allowed by law, from such owner, occupant or tenant, as the case may be, which may be in addition to any fine or other penalty imposed under Section 674.99.
