B. 
As and for a further penalty for any violation of this or any other provision in the Municipal Code, the Village Board hereby empowers the Village Manager or designee to, after providing notice in person or via United States mail to the last known owner of the property at least two business days in advance, perform such work on said property as is required to render the property compliant with the Municipal Code. The reasonable cost of such work shall be billed to the last known property owner and such bill shall be due and payable within 15 days after it has been mailed. Amounts due after said period of time shall be delinquent and shall become a lien upon the property and may be placed on the tax bill of the property in question as a special charge for current services as provided in § 66.0627, Wis. Stats.
Whenever any person fails to pay any forfeiture and costs of prosecution upon the order of the court for violation of any ordinance of the Village, the court may, in lieu of ordering imprisonment of the defendant, or after the defendant has been released from custody, issue an execution against the property of the defendant for said forfeiture and costs.
