As used in this Part 3, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- The City of Northfield.
- That individual or company who or which is under contract with the City of Northfield for installation of sewer laterals.
- Any individual or individuals holding title of record to real property in the City of Northfield and who are building in an individual capacity, as opposed to a developer.
On all new construction in the City of Northfield, the owner holding title of record shall prepay to the City the standard charge for the installation of a sewer lateral to service said property.
The standard charge for installation shall be determined by the contractor on the basis of distance and depth and shall be based upon a rate fixed by the sewer service agreement which is in effect on the date of commencement of construction.
There will be a sewer connection fee of $2,600. If in fact a property was previously connected to the sewer, and as a result of fire or other casualty becomes disconnected, if said property is reconnected within two years of the disconnection, the connection fee shall only be $300. If reconnection occurs after a two-year time frame of disconnection, the connection fee shall be $2,600.
