Where a new subdivision or undeveloped land is involved, all the requirements of Chapters 1109, 1111 and 1113 shall be complied with.

Modifications required by the Planning Commission shall be binding upon the owners and developers as well as other persons outside the City requesting the services.

(g) Sanitary sewers shall not be extended or connected to any property unless the person tapping upon same already has water service.
(h) Sanitary sewer usage fees (for both sanitary and combined sanitary and storm sewers) shall be charged against each owner or user tapping upon such sewer at the rate of thirty percent (30%) of his water bill or six dollars ($6.00) per residence, whichever is the greater.
(i) Upon failure or refusal of any owner or user to pay any of the above fees, the Department of Public Utilities shall, in the name of the City, have a lien upon all property served with water main and sewer extensions for the amount of such fee, with the power to shut off water service and to prosecute further any owners or users delinquent in their payments as required above, with all legal expenses to be borne by the owners.
(j) Further extensions and taps may be permitted by the City after the above installations are made, provided that the owner who requests such new tap shall pay to the City his pro rata share of the original cost of the construction and installation, such pro rata charge to be refunded to the owners of the property that was originally served by such extension.
