Sewer service charges; collection and enforcement

The board may contract with any city or district serving water in such area to collect such service charges with the water bills, and the serving agency may cut off water for nonpayment of such service charges. The board may pay the water serving agency for the reasonable cost of such collection services.


Service charges may also be collected and enforced as provided in ORS 454.225 (Rates and charges). [Amended by 1975 c.247 §1]
