(A) All applications for water service shall be in accordance with and conform to the provisions of Chapter 50 through Chapter 56 of this code and the regulations adopted by the Director of Public Service thereunder. No person except an authorized employee of the Water Department will be permitted to make any connection to the water mains or distribution pipes of the Water Department. No property outside the city shall be provided water service.
(B) An additional charge shall be made for connection to any main or distribution pipe for which no special assessment is levied upon the premises to be served for any part of the cost of such construction or installation. Such additional charge shall be in the amount of $30 per front foot of the premises to be served by such connections unless City Council previously has enacted legislation setting a charge specific to the actual cost of the abutting improvement. On January 30, 2009 and January 30 of each year thereafter, the Director of Public Service shall adjust the additional $30 charge based on the change in the cost of constructing or installing comparable water main or distribution pipes during the preceding calendar year.
(C) The additional charge provided for in division (B) of this section shall not apply to a connection to serve a parcel of land within a subdivision for which the developer of the subdivision paid for the installation of the water main or distribution pipe.
