(E) Grease Disposal Mitigation Fee:
1. Any FSE and/or property owner subject to the provisions of subsection 7-5-13(C) of this chapter shall be required to pay an annual grease disposal mitigation fee to reimburse the city for the costs of increased maintenance of the public sewer system as a result of the FSE's inability to adequately remove FOG from its wastewater discharge. This section shall not be interpreted to allow a new FSE or an existing FSE undergoing remodeling and/or a change in operations to operate without an approved grease interceptor unless the director has determined that it is impossible or impracticable to install and/or operate a grease interceptor for the subject facility pursuant to the provisions of section 7-5-13 of this chapter.
2. The grease disposal mitigation fee for each FSE shall be based on the estimated annual increased cost of maintaining the public sewer system for inspection and removal of FOG and other viscous or solidifying agents attributable to the FSE resulting from the lack of a grease interceptor.
