Editor's Note: This ordinance stated that it would take effect 4-1-2005.
This article shall be known and may be cited as "Ledgeview's Water Supply Development Charge Ordinance."
The purpose of this article is to establish a mechanism to recover the development costs imposed on the Town of Ledgeview Sanitary District No. 2 by the Water Authority. The Water Authority charges the Town of Ledgeview Sanitary District No. 2 for new connections to the Town of Ledgeview Sanitary District No. 2's water system in areas outside the Town of Ledgeview Sanitary District No. 2's boundaries as they existed on December 1, 2003. The purpose of this article is to pass those charges on to the property owner seeking the new connection, since that property owner is directly responsible for the costs imposed on the Town of Ledgeview Sanitary District No. 2 by the Water Authority.
Each person, corporation, partnership, public agency, or other entity (hereinafter referred to as "a water user") shall obtain a permit from the Town of Ledgeview before installing a new water meter. The Town of Ledgeview shall determine the size of the water meter necessary or appropriate to provide service to the water user.
If the new water meter is for a new connection to the Town of Ledgeview Sanitary District No. 2's water system in an area that was annexed or added to the Town of Ledgeview Sanitary District No. 2's boundaries since December 1, 2003, the water user who obtains a permit under § 126-30 shall pay a water supply development charge to the Town of Ledgeview at the time of the application for the permit. Such water supply development charge shall be calculated as set forth in § 126-32 of this article, and shall equal the charge imposed by the Water Authority on the Town of Ledgeview Sanitary District No. 2.
The amount of the water supply development charge shall be based upon the size of the meter to be installed. The water supply development charge shall equal $50 multiplied by a factor determined by the size of meter to be installed, with a maximum charge of $260 per meter. The size of the meter, the appropriate factor, and the resulting water supply development charge is set forth on the following table:

1.6
$80

$150
2 or greater
5.2
$260
All required water supply development charges shall be paid in full prior to issuance of a permit under § 126-30. Payment of the water supply development charge is the responsibility of the property owner of record at the time a permit under § 126-30 of this article is requested.
Water supply development charges paid to and collected by the Town of Ledgeview shall be placed in a segregated, interest-bearing account called the "Water Supply Development Charge Account." Such funds shall be accounted for separately from other of the Town of Ledgeview's general and utility funds.
All funds, excluding interest, accumulated in the water supply development charge account established by the Town of Ledgeview shall be turned over to the Water Authority semiannually on dates established by the Water Authority. The Water Authority shall use the funds to reduce the fixed costs of the Water Authority. Any interest income earned by the monies in the Water Supply Development Charge Account need not be turned over to the Water Authority but may be used by the Town of Ledgeview to help pay administrative costs of implementing this article.
The Town of Ledgeview may waive the collection of a water supply development charge from any property owner if the Town of Ledgeview itself agrees to be responsible for the payment of such charge.
