The Superintendent shall prepare an Enforcement Response Plan. The Enforcement Response Plan, in a step-by-step fashion, shall outline the procedures to be followed to identify, document, and respond to violations by users of the POTW. All violations by users of the POTW shall be met with some type of enforcement response. The response shall be comprehensive and effective.
A. 
The Enforcement Response Plan shall:

Systems to track due dates, compliance schedule milestones, and pending enforcement actions.
(4) 
Criteria, responsible personnel, and procedures to select and initiate an enforcement action.

Each violation shall be separate and distinct violation, and in the case of continuing violation, each day's continuance thereof shall be deemed a separate and distinct violation. Such penalty may be recovered in an action brought by the Village Attorney, or his designated attorney, at the request of the Superintendent in the name of the Village, in any court of competent jurisdiction giving preference to courts local to the Village. In addition to the above-described penalty, the Superintendent may recover all damages incurred by the Village from any persons or users who violate any provisions of this chapter, or who fail to perform any duties imposed by this chapter or any administrative order or determination of the Superintendent promulgated under this chapter, or the terms of any permit issued hereunder. In addition to the above-described damages, the Superintendent may recover all reasonable attorney fees incurred by the Village in enforcing the provisions of this article, including reasonable attorney fees incurred in any action to recover penalties and damages, and the Superintendent may also recover court costs and other expenses associated with the enforcement activities, including sampling and monitoring expenses.
(2) 
In determining the amount of civil penalty, the court shall take into account all relative circumstances, including but not limited to the extent of harm caused by the violation, the magnitude and duration, any economic benefit gained through the user's violation, corrective actions by the user, the compliance history of the user, and any other relative factors as justice may require.
(3) 
Such civil penalty may be released or compromised by the Superintendent before the matter has been referred to the Village Attorney, and where such matter has been referred to the Village Attorney, any such penalty may be released or compromised and any action commenced to recover the same may be settled and discontinued by the Village Attorney, with the consent of the Superintendent.
B. 
Court orders.

Suspending, revoking, or modifying the violator's wastewater discharge permit; or
(b) 
Enjoining the violator from continuing the violation.

(2) 
Any user who knowingly makes any false statements, representations, or certifications in any application, record, report, plan or other document filed or required to be maintained pursuant to this chapter, or wastewater permit, or who falsifies, tampers with, or knowingly renders inaccurate any monitoring device or method required under this chapter, shall be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor and, upon conviction, shall be punished by a fine of not more than $1,000 per violation per day or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both.
(3) 
No prosecution under this section shall be instituted until after final disposition of a show cause hearing, if any, was instituted.
D. 
Additional injunctive relief. Whenever a user has violated or continues to violate the provisions of this chapter or permit or order issued hereunder, the Superintendent, through counsel, may petition the court, in the name of the Village, for the issuance of a preliminary or permanent injunction or both (as may be appropriate) which restrains the violation of or compels the compliance with any order or determination thereunder by the Superintendent.
E. 
Summary abatement.
(1) 
Notwithstanding any inconsistent provisions of this chapter, whenever the Superintendent finds, after investigation, that any user is causing, engaging in, or maintaining a condition or activity which, in the judgment of the Superintendent, presents an imminent danger to the public health, safety, or welfare, or to the environment, or is likely to result in severe damage to the POTW or the environment, and it therefore appears to be prejudicial to the public interest to allow the condition or activity to go unabated until notice and an opportunity for a hearing can be provided, the Superintendent may, without prior hearing, order such user by notice, in writing wherever practicable or in such other form as practices are intended to be proscribed, to discontinue, abate, or alleviate such condition or activity, and thereupon such person shall immediately discontinue, abate, or alleviate such condition or activity; or where the giving of notice is impracticable, or in the event of a user's failure to comply voluntarily with an emergency order, the Superintendent may take all appropriate action to abate the violating condition. As promptly as possible thereafter, not to exceed 15 calendar days, the Superintendent shall provide the user an opportunity to be heard, in accordance with the provisions of this article.

Any of the following criteria is just cause for the delinquent water/sewer charge to be levied to the real property tax of a parcel:
(a) 
A water/sewer charge that is delinquent by one quarter (three months) or longer.
(b) 
A signed or verbal payment agreement by and between the Village Clerk's office staff and a property owner or tenant where the terms of the agreement have not been followed by the property owner or tenant.
(c) 
A multifamily dwelling that may contain more than one meter but connects to one Village shutoff and therefore termination of service by the Village for nonpayment of service by one family would adversely affect the other families within that dwelling.
(d) 
Any parcel that has been terminated of water/sewer service by the Village for nonpayment and delinquent water/sewer charges remaining on the account.
(e) 
Any parcel that have been vacated or abandoned with delinquent charges remaining on the account.
(2) 
The Clerk shall generate a list of parcels with delinquent water/sewer accounts that meet any of the above criteria to be presented to the Village Board on or before the meeting date of the tax warrant adoption. The list shall contain the tax parcel number, property owner name, parcel address, delinquent water charge, delinquent sewer charge and fee of $25 per water/sewer account. A parcel may contain more than one water account and the fee of $25 shall be applied to each account of a parcel. As by law, the Village Board may exercise its right to add the delinquent water/sewer accounts and fees to a parcel's real property tax.
A. 
All users have 30 days from the date of mailing in which to pay their bills. If payment has not been received two weeks after that thirty-day period, then a notice of delinquency shall be sent to the property owner and tenant (if applicable) stating that the account is overdue and payable, and if payment is not received by the end of that month then service will be terminated.
B. 
If payment has not been received by the date stated on the first notice, then a final notice shall be mailed stating that the service will be terminated on the date stated unless payment or arrangement for payment is made with the Clerk's office. This notice will state the charges due and a charge of $50 for resumption of service, if service is to be terminated.
C. 
If payment is still not received by the date stated in the final notice, then the Clerk's office shall inform the meter reader that service is to be terminated on this date at this address. No payment is to be accepted by the meter readers when turning off service, and meter readers are directed to inform the resident that only the Clerk's office is allowed to collect payment. When the Clerk has received all charges due and resumption of service is requested, the Clerk's office will inform the meter reader that service is to be resumed.
D. 
If an attempt for payment has been arranged with the Clerk's offices on the delinquent account and the terms of the arrangement are not followed by the delinquent account, then service will be terminated within three days.
E. 
If the delinquent account states that because of children, illness, or being on welfare the bill cannot be paid, the Village Attorney shall be notified and his recommendations shall be followed.
A. 
When a bill is protested by a customer because of the amount, the following steps shall be taken:
(1) 
The Clerk's office shall check for miscalculations or incorrect reading used for calculations.
(2) 
If no miscalculations have occurred then the meter reader shall be notified that the bill is being protested. The meter reader shall complete the following and a report of this investigation shall be submitted to the Clerk's office:
(a) 
Re-read the meter checking the reading for accuracy.
(b) 
Check the meter for any malfunctions.
(c) 
Briefly check for leaks.
(3) 
Based on this report, the Clerk's office shall notify the resident of any internal leaks that may have been detected or if any adjustment is to be made due to miscalculations.
(4) 
If no malfunctions are noted on the report then the resident shall be informed of the situation. Further protest should be addressed to the Village Board for determination.
B. 
Any adjustments to accounts, other than for office errors, miscalculation, misreading, or computer error, shall be granted by the Village Board by resolution only.
C. 
In cases of a rupture of waterline beyond the meter or any water usage due to running toilets, faucets, etc., the Village of Perry cannot assume responsibility and therefore no adjustment can be granted.
D. 
Connections from the Village shutoff valve at the curbline to the water meter shall be installed and paid for by the property owner and use a copper supply line under the supervision of the Superintendent of Public Works. In the event of a leak in said supply line from the shutoff valve to the meter, it will be the owner's responsibility within 36 hours after the leak is discovered to repair said line. In the event that the leak is not repaired after 36 hours' written notice, the water supply will be turned off by the Village Water Department.[1]
