Lakeland Regional Sewer District
The Board of Trustees of the District desires to amend Section 4(b) of the Lakeland Region Sewer District Rate Ordinance as follows:
All rates and charges (as described herein) not paid when due are hereby declared to be delinquent, and may incur a one-time penalty of ten (10) percent of the amount of the rates and charges declared delinquent. Such penalty shall not be compounded over time. For example, should an owner have a current monthly rate of $66.15 and not pay it when due, the District may impose a one-time penalty of ten (10) percent on that given amount (i.e., $6.62). Should the owner then fail to pay the monthly charge and its one-time penalty of ten (10) percent by the time another month has passed, the District shall impose no further penalty on the first month, but may impose a one-time penalty of ten (10) percent on the second monthly charge (i.e., $6.62) if the second monthly charge becomes delinquent.
