          NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE
COUNCIL OF GRANVILLE, OHIO, that:

Section   I:    Section 921.07 of the Codified Ordinances
of Granville, Ohio, is hereby amended to read as follows:

Section 921.07  SEWER SERVICE CHARGES.

For the purpose of providing for the cost of the
management, maintenance, operation and repair of the
sewerage system and sewage pumping, treatment and disposal
works, and for the enlargement or replacement of the system
and works, and for the construction and reconstruction of
main and interceptor sewers and the payment of interest on
any debt incurred for the construction thereof, there is
hereby levied and assessed upon each lot or parcel of land
in the Village of Granville on which a building,
commercial, industrial, institutional or residential is
located, which is connected to the Village of Granville
sewer system, a sewer service charge as hereinafter
provided. All classes of users shall be levied charges on
the same basis as described hereinafter.

The sewer service charge shall be calculated on the volume
of waste-water discharged directly or indirectly into the
sewer system and shall be measured by the water used by
each sewer user as shown by water meter readings. The sewer
service charge for the Village of Granville shall consist
of a debt service charge of one dollar and ninety nine
cents ($1.99) seventy five cents (1.75) per thousand
gallons and a user charge for operation, maintenance and
replacement (OM & R) of three dollars and ten cents ($3.10)
twenty-two cents ($3.22) per thousand gallons. If the total
sewage (as measured by water meter readings) discharged in
any one (1) month period is less than one thousand (1000)
gallons, there shall be a minimum charge of five four
dollars and nine ninety seven cents ($5.09) ($4.97).  Such
minimum charge shall be for debt service in the amount of
one dollar and ninety-nine seventy five ($1.99) ($1.75) and
for OM& R in the amount of three dollars and ten cents
twenty-two cents ($3.10) ($3.22).

The sewer service system charge will be audited annually by
the Village with the charges being adjusted upwards or
downwards in order to assure that the system is and will
continue to be self sufficient and that sufficient revenue
is being generated from each user class in the proper
proportions. No free service shall be provided in this
service charge system. Each user will be notified by the
Village, at least annually, in conjunction with a regular
bill, of the rates for that year and that portion of the
service charges which are attributable to the user charge
for operation, maintenance and replacement of the system.
In addition, rates will be reviewed and adjusted
accordingly to compensate users of each class for any
overages and underages accumulated during the previous rate
period. The sewer service charge herein assessed shall be
in addition to the charge made for water used.

Where a private supply is used, the sewer service charge
may be calculated by requiring the property owner to meter
the private water supply, such metering to be at the
property owner's expense and such measurement to be used in
the same manner as a public water meter in determining the
charge. The Village may, at its option, in lieu of such
metering, apply a sewer service charge of fifty dollars
($50.00) per month to such premises.  Each resident,
institution, commercial or industrial establishment shall
be subject to a separate sewer service charge even though
such establishment may be served by a sewer connection
common to other premises. If it be found by the citizen
that the water or waste measured or metered for any
customer is greater than that actually being discharged
directly or indirectly into the sewage system, the Village
may modify and adjust such volume in accordance with the
facts and with justice and equity, but no charge less than
the minimum shall be made for any customer subject to the
sewer service charge.

Where a private water supply is used and/or the user
desires to meter his water use or sewage flow, the owner
shall incur all expenses related to the installation of
said meter. Prior to installation of the meter, the type of
equipment installed and its location must be approved by
the Village. Prior to placing said meter into use after
installation, the Village shall inspect and approve or
disapprove the meter installation. Any modifications
required by the Village shall be made at the user's expense
and prior to the meter's use. The meter shall be located in
a suitable location that will accommodate readings by
Village personnel. Tampering with the meter by the user to
cause inaccurate readings shall make the user subject to
the penalty provisions of Section 921.99.

Section II:    This ordinance shall take effect and be in
full force from and after the earliest period allowed by
law.
