13.08.040. Supply to persons outside City limits

            The City may furnish water from its water system to persons outside its corporate limits in accordance with the provisions of the following paragraphs; provided, however, that such water shall be supplied only when and if there is a surplus of water beyond the requirements of persons within its corporate limits:

            (1)        Any person located outside the City limits and desiring to be supplied with water from the City waterworks system and being willing to pay in advance the whole expense of extending the water system to his property, including the cost of extending the water main from its present location to the City limits, 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 certified to by the water supervisor,

                        (d)        an acknowledgment that the City in granting the petition engages to supply only such water to petitioner which from time to time the City Council deems beyond the requirements of water users within the City limits, and

                        (e)        an acknowledgment that such extension shall be the property of and subject to the control of the City;

            (2)        Cost of extension to be furnished by water supervisor.  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 water supervisor a certified statement showing the whole cost and expense of making such extensions.  Such costs and expenses shall include administrative and supervisory expenditures of the Water 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 Clerk.  If the Council grants the petition, before any work shall be done on such extension and within thirty (30) days, or such other time as the Council indicates after the granting thereof, the amount of the cost and expense of making such extension as certified by the water supervisor shall be deposited with the City Clerk.  In the event that the actual cost and expenses of the extension exceed the certified expense, such additional amount shall be paid to the City Clerk upon completion of the extension;

            (4)        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 water system and who desires, from and after the effective date of the ordinances codified in this Title, to either be supplied or continue to be supplied with water from the City water system may apply for such service by filing an application and agreement with the Council containing:

                        (a)        a request for such water service,

                        (b)        a description and map showing the location and specifications of the private line system,

                        (c)        an acknowledgment that the City in granting the application engages to supply only such water to the applicant which from time to time the Council deems beyond the requirements of water users within the City limits,

                        (d)        in event the establishment of such water service requires expenditures such as for extensions and reconstruction, an agreement to comply with the requirements of the paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of this Subsection relating to payment,

                        (e)        an agreement that no user other than the applicant or applicants approved by the Council shall be permitted to connect to or receive water service through the private line without first making application therefor and receiving the approval of the Council, and that in the event an unauthorized user is permitted to obtain water service through the private line, the Council shall have power to discontinue all water service through the line,

                        (f)        an agreement to maintain the private water line in good and watertight condition and that in the event the Council determines that the private line is in need of repair or is otherwise causing an undue wastage of water, it shall have power to discontinue all water service through the line;

            (5)        Extensions may be master metered.  When an extension supplying more than one (1) house or user is connected to the City water mains, the water supervisor may require a master meter to be installed near the point where connection is to be made to the City main.  This installation will be at the expense of the persons served by such extension according to the regular rates for meter installation.  Responsible parties must agree to pay all bills for water served through the meter at the meter rates provided for in Section 13.08.130.
