    Sec. 11-4-13. The expenses of maintaining any such house of correction over and above all receipts for the labor of persons confined therein, and such sums of money as may be received from time to time by virtue of an agreement with a county, as in this Division 4 contemplated, shall be audited and paid from time to time by the corporate authority of such city, and shall be raised, levied and collected as the ordinary expenses of the city.
    The corporate authorities of each municipality maintaining a house of correction may require convicted persons confined therein to pay for the expenses incurred by their incarceration to the extent of their ability to pay for such expenses. The municipal attorney or corporation counsel, if authorized by the corporate authorities, may institute civil actions in the circuit court of the county in which such house of corrections is located to recover from such convicted persons confined the expenses incurred by their incarceration. Such expenses recovered shall be paid into the municipal treasury.
