Compulsory connection. The owner of any house or any structure located within the Village which is used for human occupancy, habitation, employment or recreation, and located on a parcel which is adjacent to an existing public water main and/or sewer main shall install, at the owner's expense, suitable plumbing facilities and shall take the necessary steps to connect such house or structure directly with the Village's water system and/or sewer system within a period not to exceed 90 days after date of written notification by the Public Works Committee. As used in this subsection, "adjacent" means the subject parcel abuts upon a right of way or easement in which is installed a Village sewer main and/or water main.
Failure to connect. If any owner fails to comply for more than 10 days after expiration of the applicable notice period provided for in Subsection A above, then, in such event, the Village may impose a penalty or may cause the connection to be made, and the expense thereof shall be assessed as a special tax against the property in question. The penalty shall equal the sum of $100 per day, and each day that the house or structure remains unconnected to the sewer main and/or water main shall be deemed a separate violation. In the event the Village determines to cause the connection to be made, the costs and expenses thereof shall be assessed as a special tax against the property in question. In such event, the owner may, within 30 days after completion of the work, file a written request with the Village Clerk stating that the owner cannot pay the amount in one sum, and asking that it be levied in not to exceed five equal annual installments. In such event, the amount shall be collected in five equal annual installments, with interest at the rate of 12% per annum from the date of completion of the work until paid in full. The unpaid balance shall constitute a special tax lien upon the subject property.
