- Access fees for meters of any size not listed above shall be calculated based on the equivalency factor set forth in the latest edition of the American Water Works Association M1 manual.
In all cases above, all other fees applicable to Michigan City Water Department, as stipulated in the agreement between the town and Michigan City Department of Water Works, are payable directly to Michigan City Department of Water Works, including but not limited to, grid extension.

*All fee may be amended from time to time by the Town Council.

**In addition to the access fees set forth in the schedule, upon connection to the system, out-of-town owners of tax-paying properties will pay an approximated "water system tax" calculated in the same manner as it is for in-town owners of tax-paying properties during the life of the SRF loan. The town will bill out-of-town owners of tax-paying properties for the amount due twice each year. Such bills will be mailed at the approximate same time as property tax bills are sent to owners of real property within the town. The first such bill will be mailed at approximately the same time as the first property tax bill would be mailed to the out-of-town property owner following their connection to the town's water grid system. The town will cease billing the out-of-town property owner when the SRF loan is retired and the "water system tax" is no longer applied to the property tax bills of town residents. Payment will be due within 30 days after the bill is mailed. If a semi-annual bill is not timely paid, the town will have all remedies allowed to it by law, including without limitation, having service discontinued to the property until such time as all outstanding amounts have been paid to the town. To the extent an owner of an out-of-town tax-paying property can demonstrate to the town, through written correspondence, that it requested to be connected to the water system prior to January 1, 2007, and but for the previously applicable $18,000 access fee, would have connected to the town's system, the town will permit such properly owner, if any exists, to connect to the system at the then applicable access fee for in-town property owners.

*All fees may be amended from time to time by the Town Council.
