When a customer’s bill for the collection of solid waste, recyclable materials and related services at a service location becomes delinquent, and water is furnished to the customer through one or more services at the same or different locations, all such water services may be shut off. In addition, the city shall have the authority to discontinue water service or solid waste and recyclable materials service, or both, without notice for failure to comply with this article or the rules and regulations promulgated by the city manager pursuant to this article. The charges and procedures for resumption of water service shut off pursuant to this article shall be those found in chapter 22. As an additional remedy, an action in the name of the city may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction for the amount of any delinquent charges; and if legal action is brought by the city or its assignee to enforce collection of any amount charged and due under this article, any judgment rendered in favor of the city shall include costs of suit incurred by the city or its assignee, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.
