As to recovery of disallowances.

13. Every sum certified to be due from any person by the auditor under this Act shall be paid by such person to the treasurer of the governing body within fourteen days after the same shall have been so certified, unless there be an appeal against the decision; and if such sum is not so paid, and there is no such appeal, the auditors shall recover the same from the person against whom the same has been certified to be due, by the like process and with the like powers as in the case of sums certified upon the audit of the poor rate accounts, and shall be paid by the governing body all such costs and expenses, including a reasonable compensation for his loss of time incurred by him in such proceedings, as are not recovered by him from such person.
