§ 50.026  EXPENSES.
   (A)   Private.
      (1)   It shall be the obligation of each property owner to arrange for and to pay all expenses involved in connection to the municipal sewer system, including but not limited to the expense of the construction and installation of sewer laterals and the connection to the municipal main.
      (2)   It shall, moreover, be the individual property owner’s obligation to assume and pay all expenses in connection with openings made in the public street necessitated by connections to the municipal mains.
   (B)   Public. The city may, as it incurs additional expenses in the maintenance and improvement of the municipal sewer system, establish hookup charges payable as a precondition to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy. These hookup charges, if any, are in addition to special assessments, a part of which, as initially established, may have been deferred.
   (C)   Excavation expenses. In all instances where excavations are required to be made in the public street in order to make an installation, maintenance personnel of the city shall make the excavation and backfill, compact, and restore the surface to the condition thereof prior to excavation and the total cost thereof shall be billed to and paid by the property owner.
