Chapter 14. Municipal Utilities
Sec. 14-70. Billing.
(1) Billing period. Sewer service charges shall be billed separately from the water bill on a monthly basis.
(2) Payment. Sewer service charges shall be due on the first of the month following the period in which the service is rendered and shall be payable by the 16th of that month at the office of the finance director. Failure to receive a bill shall not exempt or excuse the consumer from the obligation to pay for the service rendered.
(3) Penalties. Charges levied in accordance with this chapter shall be a debt due to the city and shall be a lien upon the property. If this debt is not paid within 30 days after it shall be due and payable, it shall be deemed delinquent and may be recovered by civil action in the name of the city against the property owner, the person or both. Change of ownership or occupancy of premises found delinquent shall not be cause for reducing or eliminating these penalties.
