§ 51.36  BILLING FOR SEWER SERVICE CHARGES.
   (A)   Charges for sewer service shall be billed and payable on a monthly basis. All such bills shall be paid prior to delinquency to the billing entity for the use and benefit of the City. Bills
shall be rendered on the same periodic basis as the billing entity uses for its own billing.
   (B)   The owner of a premises on which a residential unit is located shall be liable for the payment of all charges for wastewater service and all bills for such charges shall be rendered to such owner. The service is rendered to the residential unit only on the condition that the owner of the premises is liable for such charges.
   (C)   Non-residential users shall be liable for the payment of all charges for wastewater service and all bills for such charges shall be rendered to such non-residential users.
   (D)   All wastewater service charges are due and payable within 20 days after the bill is sent out and shall become delinquent after the expiration of this 20-day period.
   (E)   Residential users shall have the option to prepay for twelve (12) months’ sewer service charges at the applicable rates for those months as set forth on Table I. Such prepayment shall entitle the user to a discount of $5.00 off the gross prepayment charge.
   (F)   In addition to all other charges hereunder, any sewer service charges bill that is not paid in full prior to delinquency shall bear a late payment fee of $5.00 for each month or part of a month that the same is unpaid in whole or in part. All payments made on a delinquent bill shall be applied first to the cumulative late payment fees attributable to that bill and next to the amount of the original bill.
