If such notice is served by certified mail, a copy of such notice shall also be posted on the premises.

The Board of Trustees shall provide for the removal of such building or structure by the Village in the event such owner fails or refuses to repair or remove the same within the time provided.
The Board of Trustees may assess all the costs and expenses incurred by the Village in connection with the proceedings to remove or secure a dangerous or unsafe building or structure, including the costs of actually removing said building or structure, against the land on which such building or structure is located.
