(a) Trunk sewer and collecting line extensions in the contiguous area may be constructed in conjunction with any person in accordance with the terms set forth in this chapter.
(b) The financing of an agreement and/or contract that may be authorized under subsection (a) herein shall be in accordance with the terms enunciated therein that have been approved by Council.
(c) All other trunk sewer and collecting line extensions shall be paid in their entirety by the person or persons requesting such extensions, except as set forth herein.
(d) Where a trunk sewer and collecting line extension is required by the Municipality to be larger than eight inches, the Municipality shall pay one hundred ten percent of the differential between cost of the eight inch trunk sewer and collecting lines and the larger size required by the Municipality. This differential shall include the cost of the trunk sewer and collecting lines, valves and all appurtenances.
(e) The person requesting a trunk sewer and collecting line extension to be installed by the Municipality shall deposit with the Municipality an amount equal to the estimated cost of such extension as determined by the Sewer Department. If the actual cost is higher, the person involved shall be required to pay the difference; if lower, the amount of the differential shall be refunded.
(f) The Mayor or Village Administrator shall determine from Sewer Department records, Engineer estimates and/or other sources regarding any costs involved under subsection (e) herein and such determination shall be final.
(g) Trunk sewer and collecting line extensions may be installed by the Municipality and the cost assessed against the abutting property owners in accordance with the Ohio R.C. 727.01. When the extension to be assessed is larger than an eight inch trunk sewer or collecting line the amount of the assessment shall be the entire cost of the extension less one hundred ten percent as set forth in subsection (d) herein.
(h) Where trunk sewer and collecting lines are installed by a person and abutting on parcels not owned by such person nor included in the agreement, the person shall be entitled to reimbursement, when such parcels are connected to the trunk sewer and collecting lines during the ensuing ten years after completion of the trunk sewer and collecting lines from funds collected by the Municipality for such connections. The charge for the connections shall be an amount per foot of frontage equal to that which would have been assessed at the time of the installation.
The amount of the reimbursement shall be determined by dividing the cost of the trunk sewer and collecting lines paid by the Municipality or person by the frontage abutting the trunk sewer and collecting lines, providing the total amount of reimbursement shall not exceed fifty percent.
(i) A person, to be eligible for reimbursement, must file with the Municipality within ninety days after the completion of the trunk sewer and collecting lines or such further time as may be authorized in writing by the Mayor or Village Administrator in accordance with the specifications and plans, receipts for all labor and material used in connection with the construction of the trunk sewer and collecting lines, together with final, as-built plans, properly referenced for future location of the work.
