(e) Deposits for special purpose meters, such as for yard sprinklers and pools, shall not substantially exceed the estimated amount of a two-month bill , and in no case shall be less than $50.00 for each service connection. (f) A builder licensed in Wichita Falls who desires to have water at one or more newµ; construction sites may make a blanket deposit of $100.00. This deposit shall allow the customer to receive water service only at each site until the time of final inspection. After final inspection, the temporary water service shall be terminated and the builder shall subsequently pay for water, sewer, and refuse services. At such time as the builder terminates the account, the new owner or occupant shall be required to open an account and to make the deposit required within this ordinance in order for utility and refuse services to continue. (g) Water users located outside the city limits shall pay twice the deposit described above. (h) Deposits shall be paid at the time of application or as provided within this ordinance. (i ) Utility Collection Division may provide water service to a single-unit residence for up to seven (7) calendar days prior to receiving a money deposit where financial hardship of the applicant precludes immediate payment of the deposit. (j) Utility Collection Division may provide water service for up to thirty (30) days prior to receiving a money deposit for those customers who require water service at more than one address. The customer must have at least one active account and must be a customer in good standing. For the purpose of this paragraph, a customer in good standing must not have: (1 ) allowed his City utilities bill to have become delinquent more than one time within the preceding twelve-month period; or (2) attempted payment of his City utilities bill more than one time in the preceding twelve-month period with a check that was not honored by the bank. (k) No person 65 years of age or older who is a customer in good standing shall be required to make a money deposit for his primary residence, or for a special purpose meter at his primary residence, if he submits to Utility Collection Division satisfactory proof of his age. For the purpose of this paragraph, a customer in good standing must not have: (1 ) allowed his City utilities bill to have become delinquent more than three times in the preceding twelve-month period; or (2) attempted payment of his City utilities bill more than one time in the preceding twelve-month period with a check that was not honored by the bank. Any person 65 years of age or older, who now has a money deposit with the Utilities Collection Division, will have his deposit refunded to him if he is a customer in good standing, and he files an application for such refund, with satisfactory proof of his age, to the Utility Collection Manager. A customer shall lose his exemption from the deposit requirements if he fails to maintain his good standing, and he shall immediately be responsible for depositing the proper amount. The deposit requirements shall continue until the customer has reestablished his good standing." This ordinance is declared to be an emergency measure, and shall become effective immediately upon its passage.
