The monthly water user charge is established to cover administrative, operation, maintenance and replacement costs of the system, and to provide a fund to pay for capital improvement costs, additions, oversized extensions to the system, or redemption of bonds that have been used to finance system improvements, all as a part of the city's responsibility to provide adequate domestic water service and facilities for the city. The monthly water user charge shall be set by resolution of the city council and shall be effective upon the date and time cited in the resolution. For new connections, the water user charge is to begin when the connection to the city service line has been inspected and approved, or within sixty (60) days after the city service line has been installed, whichever is the earliest.
