   The City shall assess the cost of drainage construction on the following basis:
   (a)   The owners of the property abutting the construction shall pay the entire cost of construction when pipe with a diameter of twenty-four inches or less is used and when, for open drainage areas, a twenty-four inch or less flow line is constructed.  However, if the project involves replacement or reconstruction of an existing facility, the City shall pay the entire cost of the same.
   (b)   If the construction involves installation of a pipe or flow line larger than the aforementioned twenty-four inches, the owners of property in the area shall pay for the improvements on the basis of benefits received, as determined by the City.  However, owners of property abutting the construction shall pay no less than fifty percent of the total construction cost.  The City may, at its discretion, pay up to five percent of the total construction cost.
