Chapter 22 PUBLIC WORKS AND IMPROVEMENTS*
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.
