§ 54.175  LIABILITY FOR CHARGES.
   The procedures, rates and charges for the use of and the service rendered by the city's Wastewater/Sewage Department established in Chapter 54, and liability therefore, shall be the responsibility of the owner of each and every lot, parcel of real estate, or building connected to the sewage collection system, regardless of occupancy. In the case of a commercial property, if the city permits utility bills to be invoiced to an occupant, liability for payment shall be the joint and several liability of the occupant and owner. In addition, it shall be the owner's responsibility to verify payments are timely made by an occupant. Failure on the part of the owner to pay or cause payment for such services and other city services included on the utility bill referenced in § 50.40 shall result in the exercise of remedies against the owner set forth in this chapter as well as that set forth in §§ 50.40 and 50.41.
