TITLE 5 PUBLIC UTILITIES AND PROPERTY
CHAPTER 1 SEWER CONNECTIONS AND CHARGES
SECTION 5-1-9 BILLING PROCEDURES AND DUE DATE
Fees assessed for metered water, municipal collection and sanitation services, and sewage collection and treatment, shall be combined in one (1) monthly bill and shall be mailed or otherwise delivered to users monthly in the month following that month for which the service was rendered. The owner of each premises utilizing such services shall be deemed primarily liable for the payment of such fee. Acceptance by the City of payment from a tenant shall not constitute a waiver by the City of the owner's primary liability for charges for such services which were not paid by the tenant. The fee assessed for such services shall be due within fifteen (15) days of the date of mailing, or other delivery or each monthly billing. When the 15th day falls upon a legal holiday, or on a day when the City offices are not open for business, the next regular business day is considered as the final due date. Where remittances are made by mail, assessed fees shall be deemed paid on the date of mailing as shown by the postmark. A delinquency charge of ten percent (10%) shall be added to each delinquent bill for each period of thirty (30) days delinquency or fraction thereof. Failure to receive a billing for services rendered does not excuse the user from liability for services rendered.
