13.16.230 – Lien - Notice of delinquency

  1. Whenever a bill for water service remains unpaid sixty days after it has been rendered, the city clerk shall file with the county recorder of deeds of Kane County a statement of lien claim.  This statement shall contain the legal description of the premises served, the amount of the unpaid bill and a notice that the city claims a lien for this amount, as well as for all charges for water subsequent to the period covered by the bill.
  2. If the consumer of water whose bill is unpaid is not the owner of the premises, and the city clerk has notice of this, then notice shall be mailed to the owner of the premises, if his address is known to the clerk, whenever such bill remains unpaid for a period of thirty days after it has been rendered.
  3. The failure of the city clerk to record such lien claim or to mail such notice or the failure of the owner to receive such notice shall not affect the right to foreclose the lien for unpaid water bills as mentioned in the foregoing section.
