§ 18-73  SURCHARGES.
   In addition to the rates and charges affixed and established by the city for water, and an order issued under a stage two emergency, the City Manager shall have the discretion to require the appropriate city officials to charge and collect an additional conservation surcharge at a rate to be set by the City Manager, the rate not to exceed 100% of the rates and charges normally charged for water.  The surcharge is to continue until amended or rescinded by the City Council, or for a period of 30 days unless the conservation surcharge is extended by resolution approved by a majority of the members of the City Council of the city.  All billings covering both a surcharge period and a non-surcharge period shall be pro rated on the basis of the number of days within each period.
