Every owner of any lot of ground in the Village of Tivoli shall be required to keep said lot clear of trash, tall grass, rubbish and weeds.
If any lot in the Village of Tivoli is not cleared as herein provided, the Village Clerk shall notify the owner, in writing, by registered mail, of said condition, requesting the owner to clear his premises. If, after 48 hours after notice had been served on the owner, the condition still exists, then and in that event the Village may forthwith proceed to so clear said lot as provided by this chapter, and the cost or expense of doing said work on the lot of ground shall be ascertained, and a report thereof shall be forthwith filed in the office of the Clerk of said Village.
The cost of said work as the same shall appear from the report on file in said Village Clerk's office may be sued for and recovered from said owner by said Village and shall be a lien upon the premises so reported to have been cleaned as aforesaid. If the cost is not paid on or before the first day of March next following, the Board of Trustees shall levy the amount thereof as a part of the tax to be collected upon the premises against which said cost shall be a lien as aforesaid. The same shall be included within the completed tax roll and collected as part of the taxes against said premises.
