Roslyn Village amends commercial sewer laws

Bill San Antonio

The Village of Roslyn Board of Trustees approved on Tuesday amendments to its code on sewers and sewage disposal to more clearly define how sewage rent would be paid by commercial and industrial business owners.

Under the law, sewer rent would be payable starting June 1 and due within 45 days. After that, 10 percent would be added to the rent.

Penalties could result in a lien being placed on the commercial property, according to the amended law. 

Rent would be based on the quantity of water used by a commercial property based on usage records from the Roslyn Water District and set by the board of trustees following a public hearing.  

Village revenues from sewer rent payments, including penalties and other fines, would be added to a “Sewer Rent Fund” established under the amended law.
