RESOLUTION 10:2:06 - 5 RE: Providing for the Re-Levying of Water and Sewer Charges

Councilwoman Barbara Zulauf offers the following and moves its adoption:

WHEREAS, the Town Board of the Town of Beekman is, pursuant to Town Law Sec. 198, charged with the authority to set rates, collection periods, penalties and re-levy terms for water and sewer districts; and

WHEREAS, the Dover Ridge Water and Sewer District presently lacks a uniform schedule for the collection of charges, the imposition of penalties and re-levy with annual taxes; and

WHEREAS, this lack of a schedule discourages early payment and has resulted in substantial arrearages remaining unpaid; and

WHEREAS, the Town Board is first desirous of establishing the procedure by which water and sewer charges left unpaid, including balances which presently exist, may be re-levied and collected as real estate taxes while affording residents of the Dover Ridge Districts a reasonable opportunity to eliminate existing balances; now therefore be it

RESOLVED, that that Town Board establishes the following schedule for the re-levy of unpaid water and sewer charges:
  1. Any sewer account having a balance of $900 or more and any water account having a balance of $687.90 as of November 15, 2006 shall be subject to re-levy.
  2. The amount of re-levy of such sewer account shall be the amount in excess of $900 and the amount of the re-levy of such water account shall be the amount in excess of $687.90. The Supervisor is directed to compile said amounts and to forward the same to the Dutchess County Commissioner of Finance for re-levy and addition to Town taxes for collection commencing January, 2007.
  3. As of November 15, 2007, the balance of said accounts in any amount, together with penalties thereon, if any, shall be subject to re-levy in full and addition to the Town taxes for collection commencing January, 2008
