Property owners shall be responsible and billed for utility service at all served properties; provided, that the owner may authorize direct billings to be made to and in the name of a tenant or other occupant(s) of the premises to which water service is furnished at the mailing address provided in MMC 13.04.030. Such authorization shall be evidenced by the owner’s execution of an agreement in a form provided by the city. No such arrangement shall in any manner relieve the owner of the premises from ultimate liability for the payment of the charges for furnishing water nor in any way affect the lien rights of the city against the premises to which water service is furnished. Failure to receive mail properly addressed to the mailing address provided above shall not be a valid defense for failure to pay the delinquent charges and penalties. (Ord. 016/2011 § 1; Ord. 755, 1983)
