PART III. SEWER SYSTEMDIVISION 1. IN GENERALSec. 27-185. Initial Sewer Service Availability.

Sewer service will be provided to those parcels of property having existing structures or receiving site plan approval upon commencement of commercial operation being defined as June 19, 2003, and the following 180 days thereafter, where the City engineer has provided for service connections in the original design of the sewer system.

Where a developed parcel or proposed development with approved site plan is desiring to connect to the City wastewater system, but no connection is provided for in the engineering drawings, the owner may connect at his or her own expense in reaching or connecting to the wastewater system during the same 180 day period.

Service under this section will be made available without regard to the standard payment for connection or capacity reservation fees providing capacity is deemed available by the City. The concurrency requirements of the City of Bushnell Comprehensive Plan will be utilized to determine a waiver of capacity reservation charge on a per development basis. Customer will be responsible for plumbing cost associated with septic system abandonment and connection to the service at the property line, plus any applicable City deposit for sewer services.

Sec. 27-190. Request for Sewer Service Only.

If a commercial business establishment, multiple-family dwelling, apartment house, motel, hotel, trailer court or other unit, which is not being serviced by City metered water, requests only sewer service, such account must receive approval from the City Council prior to receiving such service. Customer shall be charged for sewer usage for such gallonage, which is estimated by the City to be disposed of through the sanitary sewers of the City by the account holder. An approved method of measuring sewer gallonage must be established and maintained at the expense of the account holder.
