2. City Removal: In all cases where snow and ice are not removed from sidewalks within the time and in the manner as provided in this section, it may be removed by authorized city personnel, and the necessary expenses thereof, along with an administrative fee to be set by resolution of the city council, shall be chargeable against the abutting property. If timely payment is not forthcoming from the landowner, the bill shall be assessed against the property as provided by law.
