Sec. 23C-7-6. Construction project rate.

Charges for the actual cost of water taps, meters, installation, and the like, shall be levied for water service to any building or construction project. The amount of such charges shall be fixed by resolution of the city council and payment thereof shall be made prior to issuance of a building permit or delivery of the water, whichever first occurs. In the alternative to the above charges, the city may require that water consumed be measured and paid for at meter rates. The cost of placing and removing temporary connections and meters shall be paid for by the owner or contractor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, water obtained from a fire hydrant for purposes of jetting trenches or street construction shall not be subject to the requirement of a building permit or payment of a fee therefor when used within a city-owned right-of-way. (Ord. No. 952, § 2.)
