BY COUNCILOR JOHNSON:
RESOLVED, pursuant to sections 43-5 and 43-11 of the Duluth City Code, 1959, as amended, for the purpose of increasing the revenue of the sewer utility, there is established and shall be collected effective with the meter readings after January 1, 2008, customer charge and user charges, based upon the volume of wastewater discharged to the city’s wastewater facilities system and determined as in Section 43-7 of the Duluth City Code, as follows:
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that any prior rate regulations inconsistent or conflicting with this resolution are hereby rescinded.
