It shall be the duty of the police to promptly notify the city manager of all obstructions of the streets, sidewalks, drains or culverts or the public right-of-way abutting any public street, alley or sidewalk that are not remedied at the request of the police. The city manager shall forthwith cause all such obstructions to be removed either by the persons responsible for the same or whose duty it is to remove the same, or failing in this to have the same removed at the cost of the city. If any person whose duty it is to remove any such obstruction fails or refuses to do so within five (5) days after being notified to do so by the city manager, he shall be deemed guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor, and when the obstruction is removed at the cost of the city, the party whose duty it was to have removed such obstruction shall be fined in addition to the penalty otherwise imposed such a sum as equals the expense incurred in and about such removal, together with twenty (20) per cent thereof in addition.
