Where connection to a sewer constructed with public funds is sought by the owner of a parcel which has not been assessed for or paid for the construction of such sewer, the Director of Public Works is authorized to impose a sewer connection fee which shall be paid to the City at the time such owner requests connection to the sewer.
The amount of the fee shall be based on the cost to construct a 12-inch diameter sewer. At locations where a smaller sewer has been constructed, the amount of the fee shall be based on the cost of the sewer so installed. The fee shall be equal to, but not greater than, the assessment that could have been levied for the construction of the sewer facilities at the time they were constructed. The fee shall be collected by the Tax Collector and placed into the account from which funds were taken to construct the sewer in front of said property.
