Water and Sewer – Sid Dev – Dave read the response from our lawyer about late fees. Ordinance 550 states 10% late fee per cycle. A late fee will be accessed to any account not paid within 15 days of mailing or date of bill. This appears to be satisfactory. We have one resident that needs assistance. A motion was made by Sid Dev to not charge late fees to this one resident if they keep making their regular payments and extra payments to catch up. If they fall behind again then add late charges. 2nd Gene Costin, roll call all ayes.
