Amending Chapter 91 of the Saint Paul Legislative Code pertaining to unpaid service charges.







Section 91 of the Saint Paul Legislative Code is hereby amended to read as follows:


Chapter 91. - Water Code - Miscellaneous Provisions


Sec. 91.14. - Unpaid service charges.


The property owner is responsible for all charges for water service and sewer service against the property.  If the owner desires to have bills sent to a tenant, the water utility will do so.  This does not, however, relieve the property owner of the responsibility for payment of the charges.  All charges for water and sewer service are a continuing lien against the property until they are paid.  The utility may annually certify delinquent water and sewer charges to the county auditor to be collected with the real estate taxes for the property on the date specified by the county taxing authority.  An $15.00 administrative fee of $15.00, or as otherwise set by resolution of the board of water commissioners, and twelve months of interest, at an interest rate determined by the City, will be added to the delinquent water and sewer charges at the time these charges are certified to the county auditor.  Charges so collected shall be remitted to the city treasurer in the same manner as assessments for local improvements.




All other sections of Chapter 91 shall remain unchanged.




This Ordinance shall take effect and be in force thirty (30) days following its passage, approval and publication.
