Section 22-74 Payment of differential cost for water and sewer lines.
Prior to the adoption of Ord. 20880 on 02/21/2011, Section 22-74 read as follows.
Upon the adoption of a resolution by the city council declaring it necessary to make any public
improvement, as provided in this chapter, the council shall, in respect to all improvements to be
paid for by special assessments and all other public improvements, the total estimated cost of
which shall be seven thousand five hundred dollars ($7,500.00) or more, fix a time at which a
public hearing in respect to such improvement shall be had. The council shall cause notice of the
hearing to be published in a newspaper published in the city. The public hearing shall be held not
less than ten (10) nor more than forty (40) days after the adoption of such resolution. All persons
interested in this improvement shall be given an opportunity to be heard at this public hearing.
After such hearing, the council may determine that it is or is not in the public interest that such
improvement or any part thereof be made. If the city council determines to proceed with the
project, the city clerk shall be directed to record a notice with the Boone County Recorder of
Deeds. This notice shall contain the following information:
When a property owner is extending
a water or sewer line to serve the owners property, the city may require the property owner to
increase the size of the water or sewer line in order to provide adequate service to other areas.
The city, in such cases, shall pay the property owner for the extra cost incurred in building the
larger water or sewer line. The city manager may authorize such projects involving city
payments of up to twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000.00). Projects requiring city payments
exceeding twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000.00) must be authorized by the city council.
