The minimum charge for each connection for sanitary sewer service shall be $25 for three months' service, for which sanitary sewer service shall be provided on the basis of 8,000 gallons of metered water used, provided, however, that in the case of more than one family unit serviced by the same connection to the Borough's sanitary sewer system, the said minimum charge shall be $25 per family unit for three months' service and the gallonage of metered water allowed for such connection shall be 8,000 multiplied by the number of family units.
The rate for all sanitary sewer service in excess of the minimums above specified for each connection shall be $5.40 per thousand gallons of metered water used.
