The owner of each parcel of land adjacent to a sewer main on which there exists a building usable for human occupation or in a block through which such system is extended shall connect to such system within 30 days of notice in writing from the District after sewer service is available. Upon failure to do so, the District may cause such connection to be made and bill the property owner for such costs. If such costs are not paid within 30 days, such notice shall be assessed as a special tax lien against the property; however, the owner may, within 30 days after the completion of the work, file a written option with the District stating that he cannot pay such amount in one sum and ask that there be levied in not to exceed five equal installments and that the amount shall be so collected with interest at the rate of 15% per annum from the completion of the work, the unpaid balance being a special tax lien, all pursuant to W.S.A. s. 281.45.
B. 
In lieu of the above, the District, at their option, may:
(1) 
Impose a penalty for the period that the violation continues, after 10 days' written notice to any owner failing to make a connection to the sewer system, of a penalty in the amount of $300 per quarter, payable quarterly, for the period in which the failure to connect continues, and upon failure to make such payment, said charge shall be assessed as a special tax lien against the property, all pursuant to W.S.A. s. 281.45.
