(A)   The rates and charges for all users shall be prepared and billed monthly and at the end of each year user shall be given notice of that amount of money charged for operation, maintenance and replacement for that user during the next preceding year.
   (B)   The rates and charges may be billed to the tenant or tenants occupying the properties served, unless otherwise requested in writing by the owner, but such billing shall in no way relieve the owner from the liability in the event payment is not made as herein required. The owners of properties served, which are occupied by a tenant or tenants, shall have the right to examine the collection records of the town for the purpose of determining whether bills have been paid by such tenant or tenants, provided that such examination shall be made at the office at which the records are kept and during the hours that such office is open for business.
   (C)   As is provided by statute, all rates and charges not paid when due are declared to be delinquent and a penalty of 10% of the amount of the rates or charges shall thereupon attach thereto. The time at which such rates or charges shall be paid is now fixed at 15 days after the date of mailing of the bill.
   (D)   Any rates and charges not paid within 30 days of the date of billing are subject to an interest rate charge of 1-1/2% per month for any month or portion of a month such charges are not paid in full.
    (E)   Any rates and charges not paid within 30 days of the date of billing are subject to litigation in a Court of Competent jurisdiction and any attorney's fees, administrative costs, and/or court costs required to collect any unpaid bills for rates and charges will be added to the bill and the amount requested in any litigation.
   (F)   A $10 charge will be made or any check returned for insufficient funds or for any other reason.
