motion to edit the wording to clarify that the policy only pertains to homes connected to the Town’s sewer system. The

policy is as follows:

July 13, 2021

Sewer Billing of Houses Not In Use

Policy Effective February 21, 2015

*Edited July 13, 2021 to clarify this policy only pertains to houses connected to the Town Sewer System*

The Town of Stovall will no longer bill property owners for sewer fees while water is not connected. However; after the

water service has been off for 6 consecutive months, the Town of Stovall will require an inspection fee of $250.00, at

which time town personnel will inspect the water connection to water meter, and the sewer equipment to the point

that the dwelling sewage line enters the tank. Any and all cost to bring the equipment up to the Town’s standard will be

the responsibility of the property owner. Water service will not be connected until the fee and a water deposit is paid,

and all needed repairs have been completed.

This inspection fee applies only to properties connected to the Town’s Sewer System.

Motion to accept and approve the policy was made by Commissioner Mike Williford on January 13, 2015. Commissioner

Francis Keeton seconded the motion. The motion carried unanimously.
