The City may furnish sanitary sewer service to persons outside its corporate limits in accordance with the provisions of the following paragraphs:
(1) Application for extraterritorial service. Any person located outside the City limits and desiring to be provided with sewer service from the City and being willing to pay in advance the whole expense of extending the sewer system to said person's property, including the cost of extending the sewer main from its present location to the City limits and then to a location necessary to provide the requested service, as determined by the City, may make application to the Council by petition containing:
(a) a description of such proposed extension,
(b) accompanied by a map showing the location thereof,
(c) an offer to pay the whole expense incurred by the City in providing such extension and to advance such expense as the expense shall be determined by the Public Works Department,
(d) evidence that the property is currently served by culinary water from the City or an agreement to obtain City culinary water service contemporaneously with the sewer service,
(e) an acknowledgment that the City, in granting the petition, engages to provide only such service to petitioner which from time to time the City Council deems sufficient capacity exists beyond the requirements of users within the City limits, and
(f) an acknowledgment that such extension shall be subject to the control of the City and, with the exclusion of the service laterals, shall be the property of the City;
(2) Cost of extension to be determined by Public Works Department. Upon receipt of such petition and map and before the petition is granted, the Council shall determine what portion, if any, of the extension in addition to the extension of the City main to the City limits the City shall construct, and shall obtain from the Public Works Department a statement showing the whole cost and expense of making such extensions. Such costs and expenses shall include administrative and supervisory expenditures of the Public Works Department, which shall in no event be deemed to be less than ten percent (10%) of the cost of materials and labor;
(3) Amount of costs to be deposited with the City Treasurer. If the Council grants the petition, before any work begins the amount of the cost and expense of making such extension as determined by the Public Works Department shall be deposited with the City Treasurer. In the event that the actual cost and expenses of the extension exceed the estimated expense, such additional amount shall be paid to the City Treasurer upon completion of the extension. In lieu of depositing said amount with the City Treasurer, an alternative method of bond or security, in a form acceptable to the City, may be submitted;
(4) Application to convert to City's system. Any person located outside the City limits who is presently served by means of private pipelines which may or may not be presently connected to the City sewer system and who desires, from and after the effective date of the ordinances codified in this Title, to be provided with sewer service from the City sewer system may apply for such service by filing an application and agreement with the Council containing:
(a) a request for such sewer service,
(b) evidence that the property is currently served by culinary water from the City or an agreement to obtain City culinary water service contemporaneously with the sewer service,
(c) a description and map showing the location and specifications of the private line system,
(d) an acknowledgment that the City, in granting the application, engages to provide only such service to the applicant where the Council deems sufficient capacity exists beyond the requirements of users within the City limits,
(e) a commitment to pay the costs of extension or reconstruction.
(f) a confirmation that no user other than the applicant or applicants approved by the Council shall be permitted to connect to or receive sewer service through the private line without first making application therefor and receiving the approval of the Council. In the event an unauthorized user is permitted to obtain sewer service through the private line, the Council shall have power to discontinue all sewer service through the line,
(g) a commitment to maintain the private line in good and gastight and watertight condition and that in the event the Council determines that the private line is in need of repair, it shall have power to discontinue all service through the line until such repairs are completed; and
(h) a commitment to comply with all other provisions of this Chapter.
(5) Service limited to surplus capacity. Sanitary sewer service outside the corporate limits of the City shall be supplied only when and if there is a surplus of capacity beyond the requirements of persons within its corporate limits.
