§ 93.52  COST OF CLEARING PROPERTY TO BE ASSESSED AGAINST THE PROPERTY; APPEAL OF ASSESSMENT.
   In addition to the remedy provided in § 93.51 and cumulative thereof, the Mayor, after giving to the owner of the property ten-days’ personal notice in writing, or by notice sent by registered United States mail addressed to the owner at his or her post-office address, or by publication as many as two times within ten consecutive days if the owner’s address or whereabouts be not known, may cause any of the work or improvements mentioned in § 93.50, to be done at the expense of the city on the account of the owner of the property on which the work or improvements are done, and cause all of the actual cost to the city to be assessed on the real estate or lot on account of which the expense is incurred; provided that, the owner of any real estate may appeal to the City Council from the order of the City Mayor by filing a written statement with the City Clerk within ten days after receipt of the notice provided for above, stating that the real estate complied with the provisions of § 93.50 before the expiration of the ten-day period. The City Council shall set a date for a hearing upon the appeal to determine whether the real estate complied with the provisions of § 93.50 before the expiration of the ten-day period. The authority of the City Mayor to proceed to cause the work to be done shall not be suspended while an appeal from his or her order is pending, but if it shall be determined by the City Council that the premises complied with the provisions of § 93.50 before the expiration of the ten-day period, then no personal liability of the owner shall arise nor shall any lien be created against the premises upon which the work was done.
