This repair program applies to single family residential units for which the sewer lateral fee is paid prior to any event causing repair. The owner shall provide proof of payment on most recent paid tax bills. Under the Sewer Lateral Repair Program, residents will pay a deposit of $125 which should be submitted with the resident's application. If there is a break in the line, the $125 deposit will be refunded to the resident and the City will bear the cost for this cleaning in conjunction with this investigative stage, up to the maximum of $5,000. If no break is found and it is determined that the sewer is blocked, the $125 deposit will be retained by the City, and the resident will be responsible for the unblocking of the sewer lateral.
