"SECTION 5.5.  CITY CUTTING AND REMOVAL; COSTS BECOME LIEN.
   The Council may, by ordinance, establish a procedure whereby City forces may cut and remove limbs, branches, and parts of trees or shrubbery extending upon or overhanging the streets after failure of the abutting property owner after 10 days' notice to do so. In such event, the cost of such cutting and removal shall become a lien upon the abutting property equal to the lien for ad valorem taxes and may thereafter be collected either by suit in the name of the City or by foreclosure of the lien in the same manner and subject to the same rules, regulations, costs, and penalties as provided by law for the foreclosure of the lien on real estate for ad valorem taxes.
