BE IT ORDAINED by the City Council of Hampton, Virginia, that the Code of the City of Hampton, Virginia, be amended and re-enacted to read as follows:

 

 

Chapter 33.1 Stormwater Management, ARTICLE II Service Charges and Revenues

Sec. 33.1-21. - SameBilling, payment, interest, fee and lien.

(a) The levied service charge shall be billed, due and payable in two (2) equal installments. The first installment shall be due on or before the fifth (5th) day of December and the second installment shall be due on or before the fifth (5th) day of June. Any parcel or dwelling unit owner who has remitted payment of the service charges and believes that it is incorrect may submit an adjustment request as provided for in this article.

(b) The service charge is to be paid by the owner of each parcel or dwelling unit that is subject to the charge. The owner of each parcel or dwelling unit in the city, except undeveloped property, shall be mailed a statement for the stormwater service charges. The statements shall include a date by which payment shall be due. All statements shall be mailed at least thirty (30) days prior to the payment due date stated thereon. Payments received after the due date of the bill shall be subject to interest as established in this article.

(c) The service charge due the city from property owners for stormwater management shall be based on the ERU rate of eighty-three dollars and eighty-eight cents ($83.88) per ERU per year. When applicable, the service charge shall be prorated at six dollars and ninety-nine cents ($6.99) per ERU per month.

(d) Any bill which has not been paid by the due date shall be deemed delinquent. Unpaid service charges and accrued interest shall constitute a lien against the property, ranking on a parity with liens for unpaid taxes. All charges and interest due may be recovered by action at law or suit in equity. For delinquent charges, interest thereon shall commence on the first day of July following the due date and shall accrue at the rate of up to ten (10) percent per annum until such time as the delinquent charges and accrued interest are paid.

(e) When previously undeveloped properties are brought into the system or in the event of alterations or additions to developed nonresidential property that alter the amount of impervious surface, a service charge will accrue, as determined by the director, upon substantial completion of the improvements or, in the event completion of the improvements is not diligently pursued, upon establishment of the impervious area or dwelling units that affect stormwater runoff. A statement will be issued and such charges will be prorated for the number of months for which the parcel is subject to the service charge.

 

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, held on May 8, 2013.
