(A) If a judgement is not complied with in the time prescribed, the city may cause the building to be repaired, razed or removed or the hazardous condition to be removed or corrected as set forth in the judgement, or acquire the building, if any, and real estate on which the building or hazardous condition is located by eminent domain. The cost of repairs, razing, correction or removal may be a lien against the real estate on which the building is located or the hazardous condition exists, or recovered by obtaining a judgement against the owner of the real estate on which the building is located or the hazardous condition exists. A lien may be levied and collected only as a special assessment in the manner provided by M.S. Ch. 429, as it may be amended from time to time, but the assessment is payable in a single installment. When the building is razed or removed by the municipality, the city may sell the salvage and valuable materials at public auction upon a three-day posted notice.
(B) If any building ordered razed, removed or made safe and sanitary by repairs, contains personal property or fixtures which will unreasonably interfere with the razing, removal or repair of the building, or if the razing or removal of the building makes necessary the removal of the personal property or fixtures, the original order of the Council may direct the removal of the personal property or fixtures within a reasonable time. If the property or fixtures are not removed by the time specified, and the city decides to enforce a judgment under this section, the city may sell the same at public auction as provided in division (A) above or, if without appreciable value, the city may destroy the same.
