A connection fee or charge is established for sanitary sewer service installed prior to 1-1-1974, to property not assessed for the installation of a sanitary sewer abutting such property or available for a sewer connection thereto of $5 per front foot of that portion of the property being served by such connection.

A connection fee or charge is established for sanitary sewer service installed after 1-1-1974, to property not assessed for the installation of a sanitary sewer abutting such property or available for a sewer connection thereto of the actual cost of construction as proportioned to the property by the Director of Public Works/City Engineer. This amount shall not exceed the cost of a ten- inch sewer. The Director of Public Works/City Engineer shall prepare and file in the office of the City Clerk a statement of such costs, and a connection permit from such property to the sanitary sewer system shall not be issued until provisions for payment of such proportionate cost to such property is made with the city.

If an easement is required for the construction of a sanitary sewer improvement across such property, the Council may waive all or any part of the cost as proportioned to the property by the Director of Public Works/City Engineer. The cost of such waived fees shall be paid out of the city’s Water Pollution Control Fund.
   (D)   Deferred payment of fee. If the fee for connecting to the sanitary sewer is not made with the application for the permit for such connection, the property owner may pay 25% of such connection fee and may sign a waiver for deferred payments of the remaining balance of such cost, to be paid in five annual installments, together with interest at a rate set by I.C.A. § 74A.4 computed to December 1 following with the September payment of general taxes, and such property owner shall consent in writing for the filing of such assessment cost with the County Auditor for collection as provided in this section.
