a commercial building with one office and two suites is three units

 

PART II - WATER BYLAW

 

1. The charges to be paid by the water consumer whose water service has been

turned on shall be those set out in Schedule “A” attached;

provided, however, that the minimum shall be payable in every case whether or not any water is consumed.

 

2. Persons who own or occupy premises drained or that are by bylaw required to

be drained into the sewer shall pay for such services a rental rate or service

charge in accordance with Schedule “B” attached.

 

3. An infrastructure fee will be added to each utility billing and shall become part of

the monthly fees; as per Schedule “C” attached; and will be subject to change at

Council’s discretion.

 

4. Accounts for water service and/or sewer service shall cover a period

of one month and shall be rendered on or before the last day of the month

following such period. Accounts shall be paid within a period of thirty days

from the date on which such accounts are rendered. If an account is not paid within the period of thirty days, the water service may be cut off. When the

water service is cut off, it shall not be turned on until all arrears have been paid, together with a fee of $30.00 to cover the expenses of turning off the water and turning it on again; provided that if it is required to turn on the water service outside the employees’ regular working hours, the fee shall be $50.00.
