Should any owner, tenant or occupant of the premises abutting or adjoining any sidewalk in the city fail or neglect to remove such snow or ice from the sidewalk, then the city may, by its proper officers or employees, remove the snow or ice and assess the cost of such removal against the adjoining and abutting premises and the same shall be a lien thereon. Such assessment shall be certified by the city clerk to the county assessor or other proper county officer having charge of the making of assessment rolls and the same shall be collected in the same manner as other municipal taxes. Nothing in this article shall be construed to place an obligation on the city to remove such snow or ice. (Ord. 410 § 2, 1985)
