A. Except as hereinafter provided, no property owner shall have the right to connect to the city’s sewer system without having first fully paid a general facilities charge, which is the charge that is deemed a reasonable amount to be paid in order that such property owner shall bear his or her equitable share of the cost of such system. The amount to be paid shall be established by resolution of the city council, as amended from time to time. Said payments shall be deposited into the city’s sewer capital fund.

The connection charge is payable in full on or before the date of connection together with interest from the date of construction (July 27, 1992) until the connection at the rate of 10 percent per year; provided, that the aggregate amount of said interest to be paid by the property owner shall not exceed the amount of the special connection charge; and provided further, that the property owner may elect to defer payment of the connection charge and accrued interest thereon in equal annual installments not to exceed 10 years from the date of connection; with interest on the unpaid balance at the rate of eight percent per year from the date of construction until paid in full.
