The city shall have the authority to institute foreclosure proceedings in the event that an assessment lien shall become in default. In the event a foreclosure proceeding is instituted by the city the owner of the property which is encumbered by the special assessment lien shall be liable to the city for all costs, expenses and reasonable attorney's fees incurred by the city in the proceeding. Failure of the city to institute foreclosure proceedings shall not invalidate the lien. The city may, at its option, foreclose in one action any number of defaults of assessment liens and the final order to be entered shall determine the principal, interest, costs, expenses, and attorney's fees to be chargeable against each property encumbered.
