§ 97.02 RATES AND CHARGES.
   (A)    Each residential customer shall be furnished one-half (½) cubic yard toter and charged a solid waste collection fee of twenty-three dollars, seventy five cents ($23.75) per month. Each residential customer who has more than one (1) one-half (½) cubic yard toter shall be charged an additional solid waste collection fee of five dollars ($5.00) per month for each additional toter regardless of whether the additional toter is actually utilized. An additional fee may be charged for any toter not obtained from the city that is not compatible with the lift system on the Sanitation Department vehicles. Unless a separate commercial contract is in place for dumpster service at the multi-family complex or mobile home park, each residential unit in a multi-family residential complex and each mobile home located in a mobile home park shall be deemed to be a separate residential customer for purposes of this chapter and shall be charged a solid waste collection fee. If a residential unit is vacant and unoccupied for a period in excess of sixty (60) consecutive days, the monthly solid waste collection fee shall be suspended following the expiration of the sixty (60)-day period as long as the unit remains unoccupied and provided the owner or the person having control of the unit notifies the city in writing that the unit has been vacant for at least sixty (60) days. The owner or person having control of the residential unit shall immediately notify the city in writing when the unit is occupied. The solid waste collection fee for the unit shall be reinstated effective the first date of re-occupancy.
