Water rates for customers within and without the Town will be in accordance with the current water rate schedule established by the Town Board.
Bills shall be rendered four times a year and are due and payable within 30 days from such billing date.
Billing to new water customers shall commence with the date of issuance of a tapping permit and/or certificate of occupancy.
All water bills not paid within such dates shall be assessed a late payment charge. See § 26B-2A(13)(c) of Chapter 26B, Fees, for late payment fees.
Water furnished to any property for any purpose stands charged against such property regardless of change of ownership, and the Town Board reserves the right to discontinue the service from a premises for any unpaid bill or bills accumulated by a former owner or owners and to refuse to turn the same on again until all arrears and penalties are paid. In case of transfer of a property, the Water Department should be immediately notified so that proper adjustment may be made of any charges or repair bills against such property. In case the water is turned off by an agent of the Water Department for proper cause, no person shall turn it on again without permission from the Water Department.
Persons wishing to discontinue the use of water must give written notice thereof to the Town Clerk previous to the billing for the current period; otherwise they will be liable for rent for the ensuing three months. See § 26B-2A(13)(b) of Chapter 26B, Fees, for the fee.
