(1) Rate. Septic tank waste discharged into the wastewater treatment plant will be charged on the basis of a full truck tank load at a per gallon rate as set forth in Chapter 3.35 PMC times the capacity of the truck’s tank in gallons; provided, however, any firm discharging septic tank pumpings at the wastewater treatment plant during the months of September through February shall be charged on the basis of a full truck tank load at a per gallon rate, as set forth in Chapter 3.35 PMC, times the capacity of the truck’s tank in gallons when the gallons discharged exceed the average volume discharged by the firm at the wastewater treatment plant during the months of March through August.
(2) Frequency. Billings will be made on a calendar month basis with the billings sent out not later than the first full week following the end of the preceding month. Bills must be paid, as evidenced by receipt of the same by the City’s Finance Department, prior to the last calendar day of the month the bill is mailed by the City. Failure to pay any billing within the time frame set forth herein shall be sufficient grounds for the City to terminate dumping privileges at the wastewater treatment plant.
