CHAPTER 23C. UTILITY SERVICES.
Article VII. Water Service.
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.)
