ORDINANCE NO. 2015-15

AN ORDINANCE TO CREATE CHAPTER 181 OF THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES OF THE VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE REGARDING MUNICIPAL INCOME TAX

WHEREAS, the Home Rule Amendment of the Ohio Constitution, Article XVIII, Section 3, provides that “Municipalities shall have authority to exercise all powers of local self-government,” and the municipal taxing power is one of such powers of local self-government delegated by the people of the State to the people of municipalities; and 

WHEREAS, Article XIII, Section 6 of the Ohio Constitution provides that the General Assembly may restrict a municipalities power of taxation to the extent necessary to prevent abuse of such power, and Article XVIII, Section 13 of the Ohio Constitution states that “laws may be passed to limit the powers of municipalities to levy taxes and incur debts for local purposes;” and 

WHEREAS, the General Assembly has determined that it is necessary and appropriate to comprehensively review and amend Chapter 718 of the Ohio Revised Code, setting forth statutory requirements for municipal income tax codes in Ohio; and 

WHEREAS, more specifically, the General Assembly enacted HB 5 in December 2014, and mandated that municipal income tax codes be amended by January 1, 2016 such that any income or withholding tax is “levied in accordance with the provisions and limitations specified in Chapter 718;” and 

WHEREAS, upon a detailed review of HB 5 and the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville, this Ordinance is found and determined by this Council to enact the amendments required prior to the January 1, 2016 deadline to be in accord with the provisions and limitations specified in Chapter 718 of the Revised Code; and

WHEREAS, Council also finds and determines that the constitutionality of certain provisions of the state-mandated code may have been put in question by recent decisions of the Ohio Supreme Court regarding, among other things, taxation of professional athletes, but these provisions must be included if the municipal income tax code is to be “levied in accordance with the provisions and limitations specified in Chapter 718” and thus reluctantly are adopted by this Council but are disclaimed to the extent they are unlawful or unconstitutional. 

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE, STATE OF OHIO, THAT:

Section 1.  That new Chapter 181 of the Codified Ordinances of Granville, entitled “MUNICIPAL INCOME TAX,” reading as set forth in “EXHIBIT A” hereto designated as Chapter 181 and incorporated herein by reference, is hereby enacted. 

Section 2. That existing Chapter 171 of the Codified Ordinances of Granville is not being repealed by this ordinance due to its continued applicability to any taxable year prior to 2016.

Section 3.  This ordinance shall become effective and in force on January 1, 2016.

Passed this 2nd day of December, 2015.

AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND SECTION 1121.01 AND 1109.08 OF THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES TO THE VILLAGE OF GRANVILLE, OHIO PERTAINING TO REQUIRED STREET WIDTHS AND RIGHT-OF-WAY WIDTHS

WHEREAS, Chapter 1117 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville  mandates certain standards for the construction of new street improvements within the Village including, minimum paved roadway widths and limiting the ability of Council to vary the same; and

WHEREAS, Section 1109.08 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Granville provides for deviations from such standards by establishing a variance procedure; and 

 WHEREAS, Section 1121.01 limits the authority of the Village to approve such deviations by providing, in part: “In no case, however, shall they be less than the requirements for the County”; and

 WHEREAS, Council has determined that the existing minimum street width requirements may require the construction of wider local residential streets than is necessary or appropriate to serve traffic generated by limited residential land uses in certain cases; and that, although Council has the authority to approve the design of all such improvements, the Codified Ordinances prevent Council from approving a lesser width requirement for local residential streets that service a limited number of residential properties; and

WHEREAS, Council has determined it is in the best interests of the public safety, health and welfare of the residents of the Village to amend Section 1121.01 of the Codified Ordinances to give to Council the ability to approve the construction of streets, in such cases as Council shall determine, that provide for a more narrow roadway width, as a means of reducing traffic speeds and impermeable surfaces, and of promoting neighborhood scale for small developments in the Village.

 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED by the Council of the Village of Granville, Licking County, Ohio that:

Section 1.  That existing Section 1121.01 of the Codified Ordinances is hereby amended to read as follows: 

1121.01, COMPLIANCE.

Improvements relating to infrastructure, whether design, configuration or construction and whether of streets, ways, paths, sidewalks, water lines, sewer or storm lines, utility or service lines, or lighting, shall be required in accordance with these Subdivision Regulations or any variance approved  by Council pursuant to Section 1109.08.  In no case, however, shall a variance from the Subdivision Regulations relating to sidewalks, water lines, sewer or storm lines, utility or service lines or lighting  be less than the requirements for the County.  A variance from the Subdivision Regulations relating to streets, ways and paths shall not deviate from the requirements for the County by greater than twenty percent (20%). 

Section 2. That existing Section 1109.08 of the Granville Codified Ordinances is hereby amended to read as follows:

1109.08 VARIANCES

Deviations from any of the terms of these Regulations may be recommended to Council by the Planning Commission in specific cases where topographical or other conditions justify such deviations,  Such modifications may be granted only if substantial hardship or injustices caused by topographical or other conditions would be experienced by strict compliance to the provisions of this chapter. 

Alternatively, deviations from any of the terms of these Regulations may be recommended to Council by the Planning Commission in specific cases where unique conditions or special circumstances make it impractical and infeasible to meet the applicable Regulations. Such modifications may be granted only if the requested variance is not detrimental to the public good, does not substantially impair the intent and purpose of these Regulations, and advances one or more Goals as stated in the Comprehensive Plan.  Such a variance request shall specify, in writing, why the variance is appropriate and necessary and shall document the unique conditions or special circumstances that make it impractical and infeasible to meet the applicable Regulations.  The documentation shall show that the applicant has considered all practical and reasonable alternatives to mitigate the unique conditions or special circumstances and that the alternatives are not feasible or practical.  In deciding such a variance request, the Planning Commission and Council shall consider recommendations from the Village Engineer, Village Utilities Director, Village Service Director and/or the Granville Township Fire Chief, as appropriate, regarding the impact of the requested variance on the public good and on the intent and purpose of these Regulations.

Deviations from any of the terms of these Regulations regarding the design, configuration or construction of any infrastructure improvements, including but not limited to streets, paths, sidewalks, water lines, sewer and storm lines, utility or service lines or lighting, may be authorized only by appropriate action of Council. 

Section 3.  This ordinance shall become effective upon the earliest date allowed by the laws to the State of Ohio and the Charter of the Village of Granville.

         (c)     The owner or operator of any premises or facility discharging industrial wastes into the system shall install and maintain, at his own cost, suitable control manholes, access points, and monitoring equipment to facilitate the accurate observation, sampling and measurement of wastes.  Such equipment shall be maintained in proper working order and kept safe and accessible at all times.  Sampling methods, location, times, durations and frequencies are to be determined on an individual basis subject to approval by the Superintendent. 

         (d)    Wastewater volume determination.  The volume of flow used for computing industrial waste surcharges shall be the metered water consumption of the person except as herein provided in this paragraph.

                  If the person discharging industrial wastes into the public sewers procures any part, or all, of this water from sources other than a metered, public water system, all or part of which is discharged into the public sewer, the person shall install and maintain, at his cost, water meters of a type approved by the Village and the engineer for the purpose of determining the volume of water obtained from those other sources.  Access to these meters shall be made available to representatives of the Village at any reasonable time.  The accuracy of the meters shall be verified at the discharger's expense on a minimum once per year basis or at the request of the Superintendent, by an independent testing company.

                  The person discharging industrial wastes into the public sewers may install and maintain, at his cost, metering devices for determining the volume of waste being discharged to the public sewer from which the industrial waste surcharge would be computed.  The measuring devices shall be of a type acceptable to the Village.

                  The engineer may require the installation of devices for measuring the volume of waste discharged if these volumes cannot otherwise be determined from the metered water consumption records.  Any metering device for determining the volume of waste discharged to the public sewer shall be installed, owned and maintained by the person responsible for its discharge.  Following approval and installation, such meters may not be removed without the consent of the Village.

         (e)     The monitoring equipment shall be located and maintained on the industrial user's premises outside of the building.  When such a location would be impractical or cause undue hardship on the user, the Superintendent may allow such facility to be constructed in the public right of way with the approval of the public agency having jurisdiction over such right-of-way and located so that it will not be obstructed by public utilities, landscaping or parked vehicles.

         (f)     Whether constructed on public or private property, the monitoring facilities shall be constructed in accordance with the Superintendent's requirements and all applicable construction standards and specifications. 

(3)  Inspection, Sampling, Analysis and Surcharge rates.

                     (a)     Compliance determination.  Compliance determinations with respect to Section 921.02, prohibitions and limitations may be made on the basis of either instantaneous grab samples or composite samples of wastewater.  Composite samples may be taken over a twenty-four hour period or over a longer or shorter time span, as determined necessary by the Superintendent to meet the needs of specific circumstances. 

                     (b)    Sampling and monitoring.  Industrial wastes discharged into the public sewers shall be subject to periodic inspection with a determination of character and concentration of the wastes.  The determination shall be made as often as may be deemed necessary by the Village, but in no case less than two, twenty-four hour composite samples per month.  The owner shall be responsible for the collection and testing of the aforementioned samples.  Samples shall be collected in such a manner as to be representative of the composition of the wastes.  The sampling shall be accomplished by the use of flow proportionate automatic sampling equipment capable of collecting composite samples.  Access to sampling locations shall be granted to the Village Superintendent or his authorized representative at all times.  Every care shall be exercised in the collection of samples to insure their preservation in a state comparable to that at the time the same was taken.

                     (c)     Analysis of industrial wastewaters.  Laboratory analysis of industrial wastewater samples shall be performed in accordance with the current edition of Standard Methods or the Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water and Waste published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  Analysis of those pollutants not covered by these publications shall be performed in accordance with procedures established by the State Environmental Protection Agency.  However, alternative methods for certain analyses of industrial wastes may be used subject to mutual agreement between the Village and the person responsible for its discharge.  Determination of the character and concentration of the industrial wastes shall be made by the person responsible for the discharge, or his qualified agent, as approved by the Village  The results of the analyses shall be reported to the Village on a monthly basis on forms provided by the Village.  The Village shall make its own analyses on the wastes and these determinations shall be binding as a basis for charges except under circumstances in the following paragraph.

In case the analyses performed by the industry and the Village result in substantially different values, an effort shall be made by the industry to collect samples at the same time the Village collects its own samples.  The results of the analyses on the samples collected by the Village and the industry shall be compared using the same testing procedures as outlined in the latest edition of Standard Methods and the differences negotiated. 

 (d)    Industrial Waste Surcharge

Industrial waste water into the public sewers as determined by this code shall be subject to surcharges determined monthly on the basis of the following formula:

                                               Pounds of excess parameter per day x $0.253 = Surcharge

The pounds per day of excess parameter shall be determined by the following equation:  mg/l (milligrams per liter) of excess parameter x8.34x millions gallons= pounds CBOD5 equals pounds of biochemical oxygen demand per month in excess of (275) mg/l concentration in the wastewater.  S.S. equals pounds of suspended solids per month in excess of (300) mg/l concentration.  NH3-N equals pounds of ammonia nitrogen per month in excess of (35) mg/l concentration.

In the foregoing formula $0.253 refers to the total expenditures per pound of BOD, suspended solids, and nitrogen ammonia respectively, to collect, convey and treat the wastewater, which shall be determined annually by the Village.  Industrial cost recovery will be established, if an industrial user begins discharging, in accordance with CFR 35.928 or latest revisions thereto, if determined applicable. 

            921.07   SEWER SERVICE CHARGES.

(1)   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, for the enlargement or replacement of the system and works, for the construction, 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 on which a building - commercial, industrial, institutional or residential - is located and connected to the Village sewer system, a sewer service charge as hereinafter provided.  All classes of users shall be levied charges on the same basis as described hereinafter. 

(2)       

(a)                  The rates provided in subsection (b)(1) below shall be effective for wastewater usage during the month of January 2012, which will be reflected in the meter readings that will occur on or about February 1, 2012 and billed on or about March 1, 2012:  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 user charge for operation, maintenance and replacement (OM&R) of five dollars and ninety-six cents ($5.96) 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 dollars and ninety-six cents ($5.96). Such minimum charge shall be for OM&R in the amount of five dollars and ninety-six cents ($5.96).

(b)      The rates provided in subsection (b)(2) below shall be effective for wastewater usage during the month of November 2012, which will be reflected in the meter readings that will occur on or about December 1, 2012 and billed on or about January 1, 2013: 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 user charge for operation, maintenance and replacement (OM&R) of six dollars and seventeen cents ($6.17) 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 six dollars and seventeen cents ($6.17). Such minimum charge shall be for OM&R in the amount of six dollars and seventeen cents ($6.17).

(c)      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. 

(d)      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.

(e)                  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.       

            921.08 APPLICABILITY OF SEWER RENTAL CHARGE.

            Where a sewer is available, it will be presumed that the waste from the premises either will be discharged directly or indirectly into the sewerage system and the property will be subject to the current sewer rental charges.

            Where premises are not served directly or indirectly by the sewerage system and should be exempt from the sewer rental charge, it will be the responsibility of the property owner or other interested party to notify the Village of the claim for exemption. All lots, lands, buildings or premises owned by the Village and within the Village shall be subject to the sewer rental charge as set forth herein. 

            921.09 LIEN OF SEWER RENTAL.

            The owner of each lot, land or premise connected to the sanitary or combined sewer system in the Village or having such connection available shall, as well as the lessee of such lot, land or premise, be liable to the Village for any charge or rental levied by this chapter. All charges for rentals shall be collected by the Village, which shall make and enforce such bylaws, rules and regulations as may be deemed necessary. 

            921.10 ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURES.
