(A)   No unauthorized person shall uncover, make any connections with or opening into, use, alter, or disturb any storm sewer or appurtenance thereof except under the provisions of this section.
   (B)   Every person desiring a permit to make a connection with, open, or tap any public storm sewer or drain, or to repair or alter a storm sewer connection or storm sewer lines, whether the repair or alteration is on private property or in the public right of way, shall first make application to the Zoning Inspector who shall consult village records and the Street Commissioner with regard to the storm sewer or drain desired to be connected with, opened or tapped. If the connection, opening, or tap can be made, the Zoning Inspector or Street Commissioner shall give the applicant the approximate location with which the connection, opening or tap is to be made. Upon receipt of all fees, the Zoning Inspector shall give to the applicant a permit stating that permission is granted to connect with, open, or tap the storm sewer or drain and also state in the permit the name of the street and the abutting lot number. No permit to connect to the system will be issued until the Street Commissioner has determined that there is capacity available for the storm water and run off to be discharged in all downstream storm sewers. When the tap to the storm has been completed, the applicant shall not cover the tap until written approval is obtained from the Street Commissioner indicating that the tap was properly connected.
   (C)   All costs and expenses incidental to the installation and connection of the storm sewer, or the repair or alteration thereof, shall be borne by the owner. The owner shall indemnify the village from any loss or damage that may directly or indirectly be occasioned by the installation of the storm sewer or its repair or alteration.
   (D)   The village shall require permit and inspection fees. The fees will be set forth in the village’s schedule of fees and can be amended from time to time without amending this ordinance.
   (E)   Any person or entity that violates this provision shall be guilty of an unclassified misdemeanor and may be sentenced to up to 30 days in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
