  • § 219-27. Sewer and drains; abutting landowners

    Whenever in the judgment of the trustees, the public health, convenience, or sanitary condition of the Village renders it necessary, the Village may require any abutting or adjacent property holder to construct a suitable sewer or drain from the abutting or adjacent premises and suitably connect the same with the main sewer or drain, or they may require that any sewer or drain already constructed be so connected with the main sewer or drain and if, after 30 days' notice in writing to the abutting or adjacent property holder of the requirement, he or she neglects to construct and connect a sewer or drain, or connect an already constructed sewer or drain with the main sewer or drain, the trustees may construct and connect such sewer or drain, or connect an already constructed sewer or drain with the main sewer or drain, assessing therefor the actual cost of so doing against the property and, the property holder; which shall be a lien upon the premises, and shall be enforced and collected in the same manner as is hereinbefore provided for the enforcement and collection of assessments for benefits; and any property holder shall have the same right of petition and appeal as is also hereinbefore provided in case of the assessments. (Added 1892, No. 119, § 2.)
