(A)   The systems development charge is payable upon, and as a condition of, issuance or approval of:
      (1)   A building or plumbing permit for a development;
      (2)   A permit for a development not requiring the issuance of a building permit;
      (3)   A permit or other authorization to connect to the capital improvement facility;
      (4)   A planning action or change in occupancy (as defined in the Uniform Building Code) that will increase the demands on any public facility for which systems development charges are charged; or
      (5)   If no building, development, or connection permit is required, the system development charge is payable at the time usage of the capital improvement commences or is increased.
   (B)   If development is commenced, or connection is made to a public facility without an appropriate permit, the systems development charge is immediately payable upon the earliest date that a permit was required, and it will be unlawful for anyone to continue with the construction or use constituting a development until the charge has been paid or payment secured to the satisfaction of the City Council.
   (C)   Any and all persons causing a development or making application for the needed permit, or otherwise responsible for the development, are jointly and severally obligated to pay the charge, and the City Recorder may collect said charge form any of them. The city field superintendent, City Planner, or his or her designee shall not issue any permit or allow connections described in division (A) above until the charge has been paid in full or until an adequate secured arrangement for its payment has been made, within the limits prescribed by resolution of the City Council.
