SEWER PROXIMITY CHARGES
Section 1 It is the intent of this Article to outline how the District will compute Sewer Proximity Charges (SPC). Vacant properties that lie along the sanitary line will be charged a Sewer Proximity Charge, based on the front footage of the property. Properties already being charged a monthly service charge will not receive an additional SPC. The number of feet of front footage will be calculated in the same manner as it was calculated for the initial front footage special assessment. While it will be able to cover most situations, the Board will have to interpret this Article when exceptions and omissions occur. The lot configuration present at the time of the initial special assessment will be used unless there has been a sale to a non-related party.
Section 2 Property owners, upon receipt of their first bill, appeal if they contest the calculation of the number of feet in the front footage. Said appeal must be in writing and must be received by the Board within fourteen (14) days of receiving the first bill. The Board of Managers will offer such persons with an appeal a chance to be heard. Fourteen (14) days after receipt of the first bill, the right to appeal shall expire, unless for good cause shown why the deadline was missed.
Section 3 The SPC will be billed twice per year: in January and July. The amount will be due and owing within thirty (30) days of receipt of the bill.
Section 4 The per foot rate of the SPC charge will be determined in an Amendment to this Ordinance once a year.
