When the applicant is a residential or non-residential property owner conducting work in the right-of-way adjacent to their parcel, the city may seek reimbursement for funds expended to temporarily or permanently repair, re-construct, restore, clean up or otherwise complete an applicant's work required under this chapter and permit through the levying of a real property tax assessment upon the adjacent parcel subject to the following provisions:
   (A)   When the city undertakes such activity, the applicant shall reimburse the city for all of its expenses within 30 days of receipt of an invoice to the applicant.  If the applicant fails to pay that amount within 30 days, then the city may cause an assessment to be levied upon the tax duplicate for applicant's parcel for the full amount of the amount expended.
   (B)   The city may also seek reimbursement of all reasonable costs, including all legal fees, expended under this chapter through the initiation of all available legal remedies with a court of competent jurisdiction.
