Sec. 14A-4-16. Assessment--Lien.

(a) The total cost for abating a nuisance shall constitute a special assessment against the premises to which it relates, and upon recordation in the office of the county recorder of a notice of lien, shall constitute a lien on the property for the amount of such assessment.
(b) After such recordation, a copy of the lien may be turned over to the county auditor, who shall then enter the amount of the lien on the assessment rolls as a special assessment.
(c) Thereafter, the amount shall be collected at the same time and in the same manner as ordinary municipal taxes are collected and shall be subject to the same penalties and the same procedure under foreclosure and sale in case of delinquency as provided by Government Code Section 38773.5 and as provided for ordinary municipal taxes.
(d) Upon payment of all costs of abating the nuisance by or on behalf of the owner of the parcel against which such costs have been assessed and a lien recorded with the county recorder, the community development director shall cause to be recorded a notice of payment of the assessment. (Ord. No. 1215, § 4 (part).)
