         (b)   The amount of money representing the cost and expense incurred or payable for the service; and
         (c)   The date or dates when the costs and expense were incurred by the municipality.
      (3)   Upon payment of the cost and expense by the owner of or persons interested in the property after notice of lien has been filed, the lien shall be released by the city or person in whose name the lien has been filed and the release may be filed of record as in the case of filing notice of lien.
