(Amended by Ordinance Nos. 185397 and 186403, effective February 1, 2014.)

 

A.  When a public sewer is extended past or to properties, all property owners benefiting from the sewer extension shall be assessed a share of the anticipated cost of the extension based on the following two revenue generation methods:

 

1.  Local Improvement Districts as described in Chapter 17.08; or

 

2.  Other charges as specified in Section 17.36.040.

 

B.  When properties that will be served by the sewer extension do not meet the cost share criteria of the programs above, and do not contribute toward the cost of the sewer, the property owner or developer paying for the sewer extension shall be reimbursed by the City for part of the cost of such extension in accordance with Subsections 1. and 2.

 

1.  The amount of reimbursement for a sewer extension shall be limited to the amount of revenue that would be received from the line and branch charge (required in Section 17.36.040) if, upon acceptance of the sewer by the City, all properties adjacent to and capable of receiving gravity service were to connect.  The reimbursement shall not exceed the cost of an equal length of 8-inch-diameter sewer line, as determined by the Chief Engineer.

 

2.  The reimbursement for any project shall not exceed 50 percent of the amount budgeted by the City in any fiscal year.  The total reimbursement in any fiscal year shall not exceed the amount budgeted for that purpose in that year, however funds may be committed against the next year’s budgeted amount.
