[Added 12-14-1993 by L.L. No. 3-1993]
Editor's Note: Former Subsection C, which provided a fee for use of sewer rods, and Subsection D, which was added 12-14-1993 by L.L. No. 3-1993 and provided a fee for thawing, were deleted 7-12-1994 by L.L. No. 4-1994. This local law also provided for the renumbering of former Subsection E as Subsection C.
Sewer billing shall be done concurrently with water billing. Such bills shall be rendered quarterly and mailed on or before the first day of February, May, August and November of each year. Large-volume consumers may be billed monthly.
Payment of bills. All sewer bills are due and payable when prepared. All bills are paid without penalty up to and including the 30th day after the date of the bill. Payment must be received by the Village Clerk's Office. Any payment received after the 30th day from the date of the bill is assessed a penalty of 5%. An additional 5% shall be assessed on the unpaid balance of the bill after 60 days and an additional 5% shall be assessed on the unpaid balance after 90 days. Thereafter, additional penalties of 2% per month will be assessed until paid. The date of a check or envelope postmark will not enter into the criteria of determination of penalty and position. If the 30th day after the bill is issued falls on a weekend or legal holiday (when the Village Clerk's Office is closed), payment without penalty shall be extended until the next business day. Failure to pay the sewer bill within 90 days of the rendering of the bill shall be cause for termination of sewer service. Partial payment shall be allowed, provided that the bill must be paid in full within 90 days of when issued. The failure to pay the full bill within 90 days of the issuance of the bill shall be cause for termination.
[Amended 4-11-2017 by L.L. No. 1-2017]
Estimated bills. An estimated bill will be prepared based on the average usage of the past four similar billing cycles for commercial accounts. Residential accounts will be estimated based on the average usage over the past four similar billing cycles.
