(A) Each applicant requesting water and/or sewer service from the town shall be required to complete an application for water and/or sewer service before the connection is made. The application shall be supplemented by any plans, specifications or other information considered to be pertinent in the judgement of the Town Manager. By accepting water and/or sewer service, the applicant agrees to be bound by the applicable schedule of rates and conditions and terms as from time to time may be modified by the Town Board.
(B) If the applicant is requesting new service where it is not presently supplied, the town shall charge the applicant a water and/or sewer tap fee as specified in the town's rate schedule for which the town will provide a connection between the applicant's building water line and the municipal water system and/or between the applicant's sewer piping and the municipal sewer system. The point of connection shall be at the right-of-way or easement limit.
(C) The town may reject any application for service which may involve excessive service cost, affect the supply of service to other customers or for other good and sufficient reasons.
(D) The town may reject any application for service when the applicant is delinquent in payment of bills incurred for service previously supplied at any location until the water and/or sewer bill has been paid.
(E) The applicant for water and/or sewer service shall notify the Town Manager when the service is ready for inspection and connection to the municipal systems. The connection shall be made under the supervision of the Public Utilities Superintendent.
(F) An applicant may request a separate meter for a lawn sprinkler, swimming pool and the like for which only a water bill will be assessed as no water will be discharged to the town's sanitary sewer system. Applicable tap and impact fees will be assessed for each meter.
(G) It shall be the policy of the town to pursue diligently all reasonable methods to insure timely payment of all sums owed to the town for water and sewer bills and all tap fees, impact fees and similar or related charges.
