All customers connecting into and receiving service from the city system are required to deposit the sum of one hundred fifty dollars ($150) with the city for water and sewer service with the provision that said deposit shall be returned to the respective customer when service is discontinued, provided that all bills for water and sewer service have been paid in full.  If the customer's water and sewer bill has been paid in full before the past due date for twelve (12) consecutive months, the customer may request in writing that the city refund the customer's deposit.  If the customer's deposit is refunded, and subsequently the customer's water and sewer bill is not paid before the past due date, the city may again require payment of the deposit.
