13.04.080: PERMIT FOR SERVICE PIPE REPAIR OR ALTERATION:
It is unlawful for any person to open, alter, repair or connect to any existing service pipe without first having received a permit therefor from the public services department. The violation of this section shall be a class B misdemeanor, punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both, as prescribed by applicable statute of the state. No permit authorizing such alteration or connection shall be issued if said alteration or connection results in the availability of water service to a building to which such service was not furnished before the alteration or connection is made, unless such building is owned by the owner of all other buildings connected to said service pipe. Any connection from an existing service pipe to a building to which water service was not furnished before the connection is made shall be deemed to be a new, original connection and the property owner shall pay to the city before receiving the permit referred to above in this section, the fees set forth in subsection 13.04.050F of this chapter.
