A. The owner of premises on which a nuisance has been abated by the City shall be personally liable for the cost to the City of the abatement, including administrative costs. As soon as the work has been completed and the cost determined, the City Clerk or other official shall prepare a bill for the cost and mail it to the owner. Thereupon the amount shall be immediately due and payable at the Office of the City Clerk.
B. After notice and hearing, as provided in Minnesota Statutes section 429.061 (which may be amended from time to time), the City Clerk shall, on or before September 1 next following abatement of the nuisance, list the total unpaid charges as well as other charges for current services to be assessed under Minnesota Statutes section 429.101 against each separate lot or parcel to which the charges are attributable. The City Council shall then certify the charges against the property to the County Auditor for collection along with current taxes the following year or in annual installments as the City Council may determine in each case.
