(a) Each sewer charge established and made pursuant to this chapter is hereby made a lien upon the premises charged therewith; and if the same is not paid within twenty days after it is due and payable, it shall be certified to the County Auditor, who shall place the same on the real property tax list and duplicate, with the penalties provided herein and interest allowed by law, and it shall be collected as other Municipal taxes are collected. The City shall also have the right, in the event of nonpayment, to discontinue service to such premises of water supplied by the City water system and of sewerage disposal or transportation until such unpaid sewer charges have been fully paid.
(b) When both sewer and water charges remain unpaid for services furnished to the premises, the Director of Public Service may certify such charges simultaneously to the County Auditor for placement on the tax duplicate.
