(A) If, after a hearing as provided for in § 96.30, the Board determines that the conditions which exist on the property constitute a public nuisance, the owner or owners of the property shall have an additional seven days to remove and/or correct the conditions, after which time the city, through the city administration or the agents or contractors hired by the city administration, shall have the right to have the conditions abated at the expense of the property owner. If the owner has not requested a hearing within five days, or has not abated the condition within seven days from the date of receipt of or posting of the notice, the city, through the city administration or the agents or contractors hired by the city administration, shall have the right to have the objectionable condition corrected and/or removed at the expense of the owner. If the city has the condition abated and payment is not received within 30 days after the date of posting or receipt of the mailed notice of assessment for such work, together with all costs of inspection and administration, the city shall have a lien placed against the property for the cost of the work, including inspection and administration costs, plus interest as set forth in F.S. § 55.03 as now enacted or as may hereafter be amended, plus reasonable attorney's fees and other costs of collecting said sums, without further hearing by the Board or City Commission.
