Collection of delinquent sewer rents may be enforced by the Village pursuant to § 452 of the General Municipal Law as heretofore enacted and hereafter amended. In addition thereto, in the event that any sewer rent is not paid within 15 days from the date due, the Board of Trustees of the Village may cause a notice to be delivered or mailed to the owner addressed as provided in § 92-41 and to the occupant of the premises, addressed at the premises, stating the amount due and demanding payment thereof within a period of at least five days of the date of such notice and stating that, if such payment is not made, the water service or the sewer service, or both, shall be discontinued without further notice, and, at the expiration of such period as provided in such notice, the Sewer Commission of the Village or the duly designated employees or officers of the Village may enter on said premises and cause the water service or the sewer service, or both, to be disconnected and discontinued. A charge shall be made for discontinuing or reconnecting each of such services on account of nonpayment of sewer rents, and such charges shall be billed and collected in the same manner as sewer rents.
All revenues derived from sewer rents, including interest and penalties thereon, and charges shall be credited to a special fund to be known as the "Sewer Rent Fund." The moneys in such fund shall be used only for the purposes and in the manner specified by Article 14-F of the General Municipal Law.
