Sec. 26-99.6. Sewer-only customers, delinquency.

 

For those customers served only by city sewer service, and not city water service, who have become delinquent in the payment of the sewer service, an attempt to collect the delinquent bill in the field shall be made. The first such attempt in any twelve-month period to collect in the field will be at no additional cost to the delinquent bill. The second, third or any subsequent attempts will be at an additional cost as set forth in Section 2-5 of this Code plus the delinquent bill. In the event the attempt to collect the delinquent bill as set forth herein is not successful, then the city shall have the right at any time to expose and disconnect the sewer, and assess the cost of the disconnect to the customer. The cost of the in field collection fee provided for in this section and the actual cost of exposing and disconnecting the sewer shall be rental charges for purposes of Section 26-99 and shall be paid in full before reconnection can occur.
