A. In the event the owner shall fail, neglect or refuse to comply with the notice to abate, within the prescribed time, and if no appeal has been filed, the City shall abate the nuisance.

B. Said abatement shall be pursued by City personnel or private contractor. The costs of abatement, including administrative and incidental expenses, shall be billed to the owner and shall be due and payable within 30 days thereafter.

C. The Council finds that an actual emergency exists, and that there is an urgent necessity for the preservation of life, health or property, whenever the City Manager summarily abates a public nuisance. In such cases, the City Manager may expend such sums as are necessary to abate the nuisance without the necessity of complying with the competitive bidding requirements of Section 67.4 of the City Charter, provided that nothing in this section changes or exempts the City Manager from any expenditure limit established by Chapter 7.18. (Ord. 6552-NS § 1, 2000: Ord. 6156-NS § 5, 1992)
