C. 
Determination of insufficient escrow deposit during completeness review.
(1) 
Within 45 days after the filing of an application for development and before a determination of completeness is made, the Township shall determine whether the escrow amounts set forth above are sufficient for the Township to perform required application reviews, including review and preparation of documents and review to assure that the conditions of approval have been satisfied. In conducting such review, the following criteria shall be considered:
(a) 
The presence or absence of public water or sewer servicing the site.
(b) 
Environmental considerations, including but not limited to geological, hydrological and ecological factors.
(c) 
Traffic impact of the proposed development.
(d) 
Impact of the proposed development on the existing aquifer or water quality.
(e) 
Impact on improvements which might require off-tract or off-site contributions agreements.
(2) 
If additional sums are deemed necessary, the Treasurer shall notify the applicant of the required additional amount the Township has determined to be necessary. Each applicant shall, prior to the application being deemed complete, submit to the Township Treasurer in cash or by certified check or money order the amount of escrow deposit due pursuant to Subsection B and the amount of additional escrow deposit agreed by the applicant and the Township to be due in accordance with this subsection and shall complete all forms as required by the Director of Community Development. The application shall be deemed incomplete if the applicant and Township do not agree on the additional escrow amount due pursuant to this subsection.
D. 
Determination of insufficient escrow deposit after the application has been deemed complete.
(1) 
If an escrow account contains insufficient funds to enable the Township or board of jurisdiction to complete required application reviews, including follow-up as to documents and conditions, the Township Treasurer shall provide the applicant with a notice of insufficient escrow balance. In order for work to continue on the development or the application, the applicant shall within a reasonable time period post a deposit to the account in an amount to be agreed upon by the Township or board of jurisdiction and the applicant. Such amount shall be sufficient to pay all unpaid bills, as well as an amount sufficient to complete all applicant reviews, including follow- up as to documents and conditions.
(2) 
In the interim, any required health and safety inspections shall be made and charged back against the replenishment of funds. Other than these inspections, no further work shall be done on the application or development. In addition, no hearing before any Township board or committee may be convened and no construction permit or certificate of occupancy may be issued if such amounts are due and payable. The time to act under the Municipal Land Use Law[2] shall be tolled during the time when there has been no municipal action on the application because the applicant has not posted the additional escrow deposit provided for in this subsection. In addition, all escrow charges which are due and owing shall become a lien on the premises with respect to which said charges are required and shall remain so until paid. Said overdue charges shall accrue the same interest from time to time as taxes upon real estate in the Township. The Township shall have the same remedies for the collection thereof with interest, costs and penalties as it has by law for the collection of taxes upon real estate and may collect reasonable attorney's fees incurred in collecting such unpaid fees.
[2]
Editor's Note: See N.J.S.A. 40:55D-1 et seq.
(3) 
The board of jurisdiction may deny the application if the applicant has failed to pay any amounts due under Subsections B through D hereof. Whether or not specifically stated in the resolution of memorialization, payment in a timely manner of all escrow fees which become due shall be a condition of the approval of any application.
E. 
Periodic accounting of escrow funds and expenditures. The Township Treasurer shall prepare and send to the applicant a statement which shall include an accounting of funds listing all deposits, interest earnings, if applicable, disbursements and the cumulative balance of the escrow account. This information shall be provided on a quarterly basis, if monthly charges are $1,000 or less, or on a monthly basis, if monthly charges exceed $1,000.
F. 
Close-out procedures. The applicant shall send written notice by certified mail to the Township Treasurer, to the board of jurisdiction and to municipal professionals who worked on the application review that the board of jurisdiction has granted final approval; that, in the case of subdivisions or site plans, the subdivision or site plan has been signed by the board of jurisdiction and the approval has otherwise been perfected; and that, in the case of all other applications for which escrow deposits are necessary, the approval has been perfected and no further work by municipal professionals is necessary. After receipt of said notice, each professional shall render a final bill to the Treasurer within 30 days. The Treasurer shall render a written final accounting to the applicant on the uses to which the deposit was put within 45 days of receipt of the final bill from the professionals. Any balances remaining in the escrow account, including interest, if applicable, shall be refunded to the applicant along with the final accounting. The refunding process shall be in accordance with the guidelines and procedures established by the division of local government services in effect at that time.
G. 
Fee for inspection of constructed improvements.
(1) 
Each applicant shall pay all reasonable costs for the municipal inspection of the construction site and off-site improvements and shall execute an agreement in a form provided by the Township obligating itself to do so. An escrow fund will be established with the Township before construction begins, and such funds shall be used to pay the fee and costs of professional services employed by the Township to inspect the construction.
(2) 
An initial fee, except for extraordinary circumstances, of the greater of $500 or 5% of the cost of improvements shall be deposited prior to the issuance of any construction permit. The estimated cost of improvements shall be calculated by the Township Engineer based on documented construction costs for public improvements prevailing in the general area of the municipality. For those developments for which the reasonably anticipated fees are less than $10,000, fees may, at the option of the developer, be paid in two installments. The initial amount deposited by a developer shall be 50% of the reasonably anticipated fees. When the balance on deposit drops to 10% of the reasonably anticipated fees because the amount deposited by the developer has been reduced by the amount paid to the Township Examiner for inspections, the developer shall deposit the remaining 50% of the anticipated inspection fees. For those developments for which the reasonably anticipated fees are $10,000 or greater, fees may, at the option of the developer, be paid in four installments. The initial amount deposited by a developer shall be 25% of the reasonably anticipated fees. When the balance on deposit drops to 10% of the reasonably anticipated fees because the amount deposited by the developer has been reduced by the amount paid to the Township Engineer for inspections, the Township Treasurer shall provide the developer with a notice of insufficient deposit balance and the developer shall make additional deposits of 25% of the reasonably anticipated fees. The Township Engineer shall not perform any inspection if sufficient funds to pay for those inspections are not on deposit, except that any required health and safety inspections shall be made and charged back against the replenishment of funds. If an inspection deposit contains insufficient funds to enable the Township to perform required improvement inspections, the Township Treasurer shall provide the developer with a notice of insufficient deposit balance. In order for work to continue on the development, the developer shall within a reasonable time post a deposit to the account in an amount to be agreed upon by the Township and the developer. The Township Treasurer shall provide the developer with an accounting of the deposit setting forth the information and in the intervals set forth in Subsection E. Upon the improvements being approved, the deposit shall be closed out in the same manner as is set forth for escrow accounts in Subsection F.
H. 
Deposit of escrow funds. The Township Treasurer shall deposit all escrow funds in accordance with N.J.S.A. 40:55D-53.1.

(1) 
Operation and maintenance charges billed to the Township by the Stony Brook Regional Sewerage Authority.
(2) 
Costs of operation and maintenance of all sewage lines and mains, pumping stations and disposal and treatment facilities operated by the Township.
SANITARY SEWERAGE SYSTEM(S)
All sewerage systems which have been or may hereafter be acquired or constructed or contracted for by the Township.
SERVICE YEAR
The one-year period beginning January 1 and ending December 31.
TOWNSHIP
The Township of West Windsor.
USER
The owner of a parcel of property containing a house or other building or complex of buildings to which a sewer connection has been or may be made or notification to hook up has been made, except for those owners to whom specific variances have been granted by the Township. (The users of the Jefferson Park Sewer System and Plant are specifically excluded from this definition until January 1, 1980.)
WELL RATE
A nominal water usage of 75 gallons per day per occupant, which equates to 900 cubic feet per person per quarter.
WINTER QUARTER
A period of at least three months ending in January, February or March.
C. 
Determination of annual user service charge.
(1) 
The annual service charge rate per 100 cubic feet of sewage shall be determined by the Township for each service year and shall be based on budgeted costs and anticipated sewage flow, except that there shall be a minimum quarterly flow of 1,500 cubic feet in calculating the charge.
(2) 
The annual volume of sewage flow in hundreds of cubic feet charged to each user shall be equal to:
(a) 
Metered sewage flow, when use of such metering has been expressly required or permitted by the Township and the necessary meter is installed and maintained by the user.
(b) 
Metered water flow allocated to such user, where the amount so allocated shall be the lesser of:
[1] 
The amount charged to the user during the most recent four consecutive quarters, which shall be the spring, summer and fall quarters of the previous year and the winter quarter of the current service year.
[2] 
Four times the amount charged to the user during the most recent winter quarter unless, as to nonresidential users, the flow from said quarter is less than 50% of the flow of the lowest of the preceding three quarters; in such case, the charge as calculated in Subsection C(2)(a) shall apply.
(3) 
Where there is insufficient data on metered sewage or water flow, the amount charged to the user shall be calculated at the rate of new users set forth in Subsection D.
D. 
Determination of initial user service charge. The initial user service charges shall be determined by the Township on an estimated basis.
(1) 
New residential users. The initial user service charge shall be a flat rate based on the annual service charge rate for 3,000 cubic feet of sewage per quarter, until the following service year, when sufficient billing information is available.
(2) 
New nonresidential users. The initial annual service charge shall be a flat rate based on the annual service charge rate calculated by multiplying the building floor area by .06, until the following service year, when sufficient billing information is available.
E. 
Private water supply. In instances where neither sewage flow nor allocated water flow is metered but the Township provides sewerage service, then the annual user charge shall be determined by either of the following procedures at the user's discretion:
(1) 
Calculated quarterly usage based upon the well rate multiplied by the number of occupants.
(2) 
Winter quarter water usage based on readings of a water meter installed on the private water supply. A suitable water meter will be furnished by the Township and properly installed and maintained by the user. The user shall permit access to such meter by authorized Township representatives during reasonable hours of the day. After a meter is installed, charges will be calculated in accordance with Subsection D(1) hereof until the next service year.
F. 
User service charges contested. In the event that it is contested by the Township or by the user that the annual service charge does not fairly reflect the amount of sewage discharged into the sanitary sewer system, the method of calculating the service charge may be adjusted accordingly by the Township on written application of the aggrieved party after hearing on notice to the other party.
G. 
Surcharges. Users disposing of waste containing higher than normal concentrations of certain constituents shall pay for this service. Such surcharges will be imposed for sewage constituents that exceed those specified by the Stony Brook Regional Sewerage Authority.

H. 
Starting date for user charges. User service charges shall begin either immediately upon issuance by the Township of a certificate of occupancy or 60 days following the mailing to the user by the Township of notification to hook up.
I. 
User service charges payable semiannually. Service charges shall be due and payable on March 1 and September 1 and shall draw the same interest from the time they become due as taxes upon real estate. Said charges shall be a lien upon the premises connected until paid. In the event that any such charge shall remain unpaid, such charge, with interest and costs in the event that the same exceeds $5, shall be collected by means of the same remedies as provided by law for collection of taxes on real estate. In the event that senior citizen status or financial hardship is shown by the user and is certified by the Director of Senior and Social Services, the Township may permit payments to be made quarterly (March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1).
J. 
One water meter serving more than one dwelling unit. In the case of buildings for which there is one water meter for more than one dwelling unit, the individual unit owners shall be billed based upon the method of allocation of charges between the unit owners covered by the single meter that is set forth in the documents of the condominium association or homeowners' association for sewerage, if any, or, if not, for water charges. The aggregate amount to be divided among the unit owners shall be calculated in the manner set forth in Subsections C and D. The Tax Collector shall collect any charges due pursuant to Subsection D from individual owners billed prior to the effective date of this section, and no individual unit owner who has paid such charge shall be entitled to a refund therefor. Each applicant for development shall, in the public offering statement or other document approved by the Planning Board Attorney, notify purchasers of dwelling units in multi-unit buildings with single water meters of the manner in which they will be billed for their share of the sewer charges and shall notify the Tax Collector prior to issuance of the first certificate of occupancy for a multi-unit building with one water meter of the location of such building.
K. 
For owners of properties located within West Windsor Township but having sewer service provided by an entity outside of West Windsor Township, other than the Stony Brook Regional Sewerage Authority, the fee shall be the charges imposed by the entity providing the service plus an additional charge of 10% imposed by West Windsor Township.
