13.16.240 – Foreclosure of lien

Property subject to a lien for unpaid water charges shall be sold for nonpayment of the same, and the proceeds of the sale shall be applied to pay the charges, after deducting costs, as is the case in the foreclosure of statutory liens.  Such foreclosure shall be by bill in equity in the name of the city.  The city attorney is authorized and directed to institute such proceedings in the name of the city in any court having jurisdiction over such matters, against any property for which the bill for water has remained unpaid ninety days after it has been rendered.

(Prior code: § 15.310)
