B. In addition to all other fees provided herein, and in addition to all charges for the consumption of water, the user shall pay to the Village a fee of twenty dollars ($20.00) to be used to defray the costs of handling the hydrant meter rental application and ten dollars ($10.00) per each day such temporary connection is in place.
