On receipt of the notice, the property owner may abate the nuisance at his/her own expense.  Nevertheless, whenever such a notice is issued, the city manager may demand that the property owner pay costs incurred by the city in enforcing abatement upon the property, including investigation, boundary determination, measurement, preparation and service of the notice, and related costs (“notice costs”).  If the property owner does not pay such costs, a special assessment may be imposed on the property, as provided for in this article.
