A. No connection to lines will be allowed until the payment in lieu of assessment is made or arrangements for payment suitable and approved by the city council are made. Suitable lines or mains for connection, as determined and approved by the city engineer, shall be provided prior to connection.
B. The city reserves the right to refuse individual property owners connection to sewer lines unless a utility connection agreement, on form provided by the city available at City Hall, are properly signed and completed by the property owners. The city further reserves the right to refuse individual property owners connection to the city mains at such time as council finds that the treatment plant, sewer main, or any portion of the city’s sewer system is at maximum efficient capacity so as to make it inadvisable in the opinion of the council to provide for and allow further connections to the city’s system.
C. The city reserves the right to review sewer connection including side sewers under MMC 13.08.220 on an individual basis. Consideration to serving the area designated the 1990 service area, and as set forth on a map designating said area and filed with the city clerk, shall be given. Factors to be considered in accepting or rejecting any proposal for sewer main extensions shall include, but are not limited to, the capacity of the Valley View Road interceptor sewer line and pump station, sewer treatment plant capacity, allocations of sewer system capacity already made or provided for the existing demands and allocations on sewer service in the city.
D. Fee in lieu of assessment charges shall not apply for connections located in the 1990 service area as follows:
1. Where premises are connected to sewer mains outside the service area set forth in MMC 13.08.220, being basically the area within three hundred feet of the Valley View Road interceptor sewer line, after January 1, 1983;
2. Connections to sewer line extensions from the Valley View Road interceptor sewer line, when said lines have been dedicated or donated to the city prior to such connections;
3. Lines constructed pursuant to a local improvement district or utility local improvement district, unless the fee in lieu of assessment is included as an expense of such district;
4. Where a fee in lieu of assessment has been paid for connections outside the service area defined in MMC 13.08.220, then the city treasurer shall be empowered to reimburse said payor(s); it being understood that the provisions of this section are in clarification of prior code provisions and in some instances such fees have been paid pending this clarification.
