The city may remove from all public sidewalks all snow, ice, dirt and rubbish beginning 24 hours after any matter has been deposited thereon or after the snow has ceased to fall. The city shall keep a record showing the cost of the removal adjacent to each separate lot and parcel and shall deliver the information to the Administrator. The owner of property adjacent to which snow, ice, dirt or rubbish has been removed by the city shall be personally liable for the cost of service. As soon as the service has been completed and the cost determined, the Administrator shall prepare a bill and mail it to the owner and thereupon the amount shall be immediately due and payable at the office of the Administrator. On or before October 15 of each year, the Administrator shall list the total unpaid charges for the removal of snow, ice, dirt or rubbish from sidewalks for each separate lot or parcel to which they are attributable under this article. The City Council may then spread the charges against property benefitted as a special assessment under M.S. § 429.01, as may be amended from time to time, and other pertinent statutes for certification to the County Auditor and collection the following year along with current taxes.
