Sec. 34-5. Deferral of availability charges and connection fees to the city sewer system for certain persons.
For those owner-occupants of existing dwellings, who have an equity not exceeding thirty thousand dollars ($30,000.00) therein and who meet the financial eligibility requirements of the Medicaid program for group III Virginia localities, as determined by the department of human services, the availability charges and connection fees imposed by Section 34-4(c)(2) shall, upon request, be deferred until such time as title to the property passes by sale or inheritance. Such persons shall, prior to connection with the city sewer system, execute a petition, approved by the city attorney, granting to the city a lien in the amount of the fees and charges plus all interest which may accrue. When the charges are so deferred, they shall be subject to the payment of an annual simple interest charge of six (6) per cent on the unpaid balance of such fees and charges, provided that such persons shall have the right at any time to make payments, partial or in full of the balance due for such connection. Passage of title to a spouse shall not constitute inheritance under this section. (Code 1959, § 29-6.4; Ord. of 10-25-77)
