Any action at law brought, and any lien filed in court, for the cost and expense of laying or constructing any sidewalk or repairing the same, shall be for the use of the contractor, and the City shall not be otherwise liable for the claim. However, it shall be competent for Council to order otherwise and to pay the contractor for the construction and repair of sidewalks by appropriation made from the general revenues and to collect the cost and expense by an action at law or by a lien for its own use. The City Engineer, when requested, shall furnish the City Solicitor, in all cases, with a description of the respective premises against which a lien is proposed to be filed.
