(A) All charges for services of this garbage collection and disposal system shall be due and payable the fifteenth day of the month following the month in which the services are rendered and shall be billed to the person, concern, corporation, association or property owner by the city Utilities Department on the first day of the month following the month when services are rendered. Such charge may be included along with the bill for any other utility service (such as water, sewer or gas) or may be billed by separate bill.
(B) The charge for collection of garbage and trash shall be billed either to the occupant of the property or the owner of the property as reflected in the Pike County Property Valuation Administrator’s office. Both the occupant and property owner shall jointly and severally be liable for said collection fee. The city shall be entitled to a lien upon the property for unpaid garbage and trash collection fees. The city may disconnect utility services to any property for which there is an unpaid garbage and trash collection fee. The city may include the bill issued by the city to the owner of the property in the event that the occupant does not pay the garbage and trash collection fee, regardless of whether the utility service bill in which the garbage and trash collection fee if added is for other utilities being supplied to the property. The city may disconnect any utility services to any person, concern, corporation or association which owes outstanding garbage and trash collection fees connected to the property in which the garbage and trash collection fee was incurred. It is the intent of this section to make property owners fully liable for unpaid garbage and trash collection fees in connection with the collection services for the owner’s property.
