It shall be the further duty of the Highway Committee to have properly numbered all buildings whose owners have neglected or refused to do so as aforesaid; such numbering shall be let by contract to the best and lowest bidder, and the cost of numbering each building shall be collected as a penalty for the owner in the manner provided by law for the collection of fines and penalties.
