So the city can obtain a final meter reading for prior tenants and starting meter readings for new tenants, the owner is obligated to give the city a minimum of a two working day written notice before a new tenant occupies the premises. The owner also is obligated to inform the city the date when a tenant in whose name the service is billed will vacate a premises. The city is not responsible to keep track of tenants who may “skip-out” on an owner. In the case where water service has been shut off due to nonpayment of service, the water service will not be turned on until the past-due bills for water, sewer, and solid waste, penalties, red tag fee, the current bill, and the reconnection fee are paid by either the tenant or the owner.
