Garbage disposal equipment may be installed on private property by said city or village making provision for garbage disposal equipment, as may be required by ordinance, after written agreement with the owner of such property. Any such ordinance adopted pursuant to the provisions of this act shall, in addition to providing for the payment of rates and charges and such other terms and conditions as may be necessary to fully perform and exercise the powers conferred by this act provide that all such garbage disposal equipment shall be deemed the property of the city or village installing such equipment and any such ordinance shall fix the responsibility for the use, care, maintenance and replacement thereof. All such rates and/or charges shall have as security for their collection a lien upon the building in which said equipment is installed and upon the premises or lot or lots or parcel or parcels of land upon which the building is situated. Such lien shall become effective and shall be enforced as provided by ordinance. Such lien shall have priority over all other liens except taxes, special assessments and liens for unpaid water charges or sewage disposal charges. Any city or village may provide by ordinance for the discontinuance of water service from the building whenever any person shall fail to pay rates or charges for such garbage disposal equipment.
