§ 51.44 BILLING.
   (A)   Such rates and charges shall be prepared, billed and collected by the town in the manner provided by law and ordinance.
   (B)   The rates and charges for all users shall he prepared and billed monthly.
   (C)   The rates and charges may be billed to the tenant or tenants occupying the properties served, unless otherwise requested in writing by the owner, but such billing shall in no way relieve the owner from the liability in the event payment is not made as herein required. The owners of properties served, which are occupied by a tenant or tenants, shall have the right to examine the collection records of the town for the purpose of determining whether bills have been paid by such tenant or tenants, provided that such examination shall be made at the office at which said records are kept and during the hours that such office is open for business.
   (D)   As is provided by statute, all rates and charges not paid when due are hereby declared to be delinquent and a penalty of 10% of the amount of the rates or charges shall thereupon attach thereto. The time at which such rates shall be paid is now fixed at 15 days after the date of mailing of the bill.
   (E)   In the event that it is necessary to institute any proceedings to collect any past due amount, then the owner of the property shall he responsible for all collection costs, fees, reasonable attorney fees, court costs or other expenses incurred by the town.
