If the property owner fails to take corrective action in the time period prescribed in § 56.006 of this chapter, the city may do so by its own crews or by persons under its hire and assess against the property owner the city’s cost therefor. Said costs shall include the salaries and benefits earned by city employees during such corrective action, a charge for city machinery used and such other costs and expenses as the city actually incurred. To the extent allowed by state law, such costs and expenses may be assessed against the property owner and collected in the same manner as a property tax.
