Section 11-67-8

Hearing on cost of abatement or removal of nuisance; costs to constitute weed liens; report to Tax Collector; amounts to be included in tax bills; collection.

At the time fixed for receiving and considering said report, the governing body shall hear the same, together with any objections which may be raised by any of the property owners liable to be assessed for the work of abating said nuisance and thereupon make such modifications in the report as they deem necessary, after which by motion or resolution said report shall be confirmed. The amounts of the cost for abating such nuisance in front of or upon the various parcels of land mentioned in said report shall hereinafter be referred to as "weed liens", and as thus made and confirmed shall constitute a weed lien on said property for the amount of such weed liens, respectively. After confirmation of said report, a copy shall be turned over to the Tax Collector of Mobile County who, under the "Optional Method of Taxation", is charged with the collection of the City of Mobile's municipal taxes pursuant to Sections 11-51-40 through 11-51-74; whereupon it shall be the duty of said Mobile County Tax Collector to add the amounts of the respective weed liens to the next regular bills for taxes levied against the said respective lots and parcels of land, and thereafter said amounts shall be collected at the same time and in the same manner as ordinary municipal ad valorem taxes are collected, and shall be subject to the same penalties and the same procedure under foreclosure and sale in case of delinquency.
