(a)    Should the nuisance not be abated within the time stated in the notice, the Director of Public Service and Safety or his authorized representative shall have the right to enter upon the premises and to abate such nuisance. In abating any nuisance, the Director may take such action as is necessary and should it be possible to sell or salvage any material resulting from the abatement, he may cause the same to be sold at the best price obtainable and keep an account of the proceeds thereof. Such proceeds shall be deposited in the general fund of the City and any difference in the amount received and the cost of the abatement shall be reported to Council which shall levy an assessment against the premises and cause such assessment to be certified and collected as other assessments.
   (b)    Should the proceeds of the sale of any material salvaged in the course of the abatement exceed the cost thereof, the amount of such excess shall be paid to the owner or owners of the premises upon the filing of a claim and proof of title to such surplus.
   (c)    The Director may utilize any labor or equipment of the City in making such abatement or may contract for the abatement thereof if such contract may be let without any expense whatever to the City.
