(A)   Charges shall be payable within 10 days after billing.  Any premises making connection with the municipal system and using the same after the first day of the month shall be charged a per diem prorata amount, based upon the monthly minimum charge, from the time such connection is made or such discharge into the municipal system is begun, until the commencement of the next following billing period applicable to such premises, except that should the measured service exceed the minimum charge, the measured rate shall be charged.  In case of failure to pay any bill for sewer charges when due and payable a penalty of 10% of such charge shall be added to the bill.
   (B)   Each sewer charge levied is made a lien upon the premises charged therewith, and if the same is not paid within 20 days after it is due and payable, it shall be certified to the auditor of Miami County, who shall place the same on the tax duplicate, with the interest and penalties allowed by law, and collected as other municipal taxes.  The City Manager shall have the right, in event of nonpayment, to discontinue service to such premises until unpaid sewer charges have been fully paid.
