Section 22-231 Definition; establishment.


    District sewers are those which have been or may be constructed or acquired, under authority of ordinance, within the limits of an established sewer district, and paid for in whole or in part by special tax bills evidencing special assessments upon the property in the district. District sewers shall be established within the limits of the districts prescribed by ordinance, and shall connect with public sewers or other district sewers and may be constructed with the main branch or discharge pipe wholly within or beyond the boundary of the district, as the council shall determine. Such district may be subdivided, enlarged or changed by ordinance at any time previous to the construction of the sewers therein; and more than one district sewer may be laid in a sewer district if deemed necessary by the council for sanitary or other purposes. The council shall cause sewers to be constructed in each district whenever a majority of the resident property owners therein shall petition therefor or whenever the council shall deem such sewers necessary for sanitary or other purposes.
