    If the owner of any lands assessed as hereinbefore provided shall neglect to pay to the Chief Administrative Officer the amount of any such assessment for 90 days after the final record in the matter of making such assessment shall have been made in the records of said streets and highways in the Chief Administrative Officer's office, the Chief Administrative Officer shall issue his or her warrant to the Constable of said City for the collection thereof; and said Constable shall have power on such warrant to distrain and sell at public auction so much of the goods and chattels of such owner, and for want thereof so much of said lands so assessed as will satisfy said assessment and all legal fees and shall be entitled to the same fees on such warrant as collectors of town taxes on tax warrants; and the Chief Administrative Officer shall proceed in the same manner as collectors of town taxes are required by law to proceed in selling goods and chattels or real estate at auction for the collection of taxes, except that the Chief Administrative Officer shall have no right on such warrant for want of goods and chattels of such owner to arrest the owner and commit him or her to jail.
