Title

Updating the City’s policy for assessment of sanitary sewer improvements to serve unsewered and sewered lands located within the current and future boundaries of the City of Madison. (Citywide)

Body

WHEREAS, the City of Madison needs to establish the conditions for connection to City sanitary sewer facilities to unsewered and sewered lands within the City of Madison, and;

 

WHEREAS, providing sanitary sewer service to properties is a municipal service necessary for the City to grow, and;

 

WHEREAS, the use of special assessments for the extension of new sanitary sewer reduces the impact of new development on current rate payers, and;

 

WHEREAS, the City has established policies for the assessments of sanitary sewer improvements, but it is necessary and appropriate for the City to update these policies in order to more equitably apportion special assessments on future public improvement projects.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the City of Madison Policy for the Assessment of Sanitary Sewer Improvements, attached hereto and incorporated by reference, is hereby approved and shall be the established policy of the City regarding sanitary sewer special assessments, superseding any prior policy or resolution that is inconsistent therewith.
