220-42. Sewer Rent Appeals § 220-42:2 B.
Any individual or legal entity may appeal to the Sewer Rent Appeal Board if he or it believes that a substantial portion of the water delivered to its premises, upon which the current bill has been rendered, has been utilized or diverted on a regular or continuing basis such that it has not flowed into the sewer system or if he or it can demonstrate a significant change in water usage since the water meter reading upon which the sewer rent is based. The burden of proof shall be upon the appellant to demonstrate that a substantial portion of the water delivered was utilized or diverted on a regular or continuing basis such that it has not flowed into the sewer system or that there has been a significant change in water usage since the water meter reading upon which the sewer rent is based. Based upon the evidence presented to the Sewer Rent Appeal Board, it may determine that only a percentage of the volume of water delivered shall be used in determining the user’s sewer rent. All such appeals must be filed in the office of the Village Clerk. A decision of the Sewer Rent Appeal Board becomes final when filed in the office of the Village Clerk. The decision of the Appeal Board shall be sent to the appellant.
