§ 237-36. Water rents
All water rents and charges due the Village for the use of the Village water supply or the Village aqueduct system in case of non-payment thereof shall be and remain a lien in the nature of a tax upon the real estate so supplied with water, whether such rents or charges be charged in the first instance against the owner or occupant thereof. Such lien shall be enforceable in the same manner and to the same effect as the lien for taxes under the laws of this State.
