§ 51.402  ANNUAL STUDY.
   (A)   In order that the rates and charges for sewage services may remain fair and equitable and be in proportion to the cost of providing services to the various users of user classes, the town shall cause a study to be made within a reasonable period following the first 12 months of operation, following the date on which this subchapter goes into effect. Such study shall include, but not be limited to, an analysis of the costs associated with the treatment of excessive strength effluents from industrial users or user classes, the financial position of the sewerage system and the adequacy of its revenue to provide reasonable funds for operation and maintenance, replacements, debt service requirements and capital improvements to the sewerage system.
   (B)   Thereafter, on an annual basis, within a reasonable period following the normal accounting period, the town shall cause a similar study to be made for the purpose of reviewing the fairness and equity of the rates and charges for sewage services on a continuing basis. Said studies shall be conducted by officers or employees of the town or by a firm of certified experience in such studies, or by such combination of officers, employees, certified public accountants, or engineers as the town shall determine to be best under the circumstances.
