58. If the formal notice sent under section 57 is not acted upon within the time mentioned, a judge of the Superior Court sitting in the district where the immovable is situated may, upon an application presented even during the suit, require the owner or occupant of the immovable to take the steps required to abate the unsanitary condition within the time the judge determines or to prevent its recurrence, and order that, on failure to do so, the municipality may itself take the required steps at the expense of the owner or occupant.
When the owner and occupant of the immovable are unknown, unconfirmed or cannot be found, the judge may authorize the municipality to take immediate steps to remedy the situation and eventually claim the cost from the owner or occupant.
