(a) If no one complies with the Order to Abate within the prescribed time period, the County Abatement Officer may abate the public nuisance. The County may remove or destroy any property listed in the Order to Abate necessary to abate the nuisance. The County shall keep a separate account of the cost of abatement for each assessor's parcel involved in the abatement.
(b) When the County has completed the work of abatement, or has paid for the work, it shall bill the property owner for the actual cost of abating the nuisance, and the County's administrative costs, including reasonable attorney's fees. If the County waived the appeal fee pursuant to section 16.208 the fee shall be added to the abatement cost. If unpaid, the combined amounts shall be included in a bill and mailed to the owner or the owner's agent for payment. The bill shall state that if the bill is not paid 15 days from the date of mailing the County may impose a lien on the property.
