ADMINISTRATION OF THE GOVERNMENT (Chapters 1 through 182)
COLLECTION OF LOCAL TAXES
Directions to collectors; ordinances or by-laws
Section 87. A city or town may, by ordinance or by-law, respectively, direct whether its collector shall exercise the power of sale or the power of taking to enforce the lien for taxes; and in default of such ordinance or by-law the collector may exercise either power at his discretion; but the passage of any such ordinance or by-law shall not render invalid any proceedings then pending.
