Utility Billing and Collections
The OPERATING CODE for the Village of Cleves, Ohio, Department of WATER WORKS SYSTEM was adopted by Ordinance No. 14-1956 of the Board of Trustees of Public Affairs. These regulations were amended by Resolution No. 1-2012 to adopt the City of Cincinnati, Supplement to the State of Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Construction and Materials Specification latest revision and the Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) Chapter 401 of the Cincinnati Municipal Code.
The intent of this amendment was to update construction specification to agree with those of the GCWW and not to substantially change the Operating Code of the Cleves WATER WORKS SYSTEM. Billing and Payment Requirements specified in Chapter 401 of GCWW Regulation were specifically exempted.
The billing and collection policies outlined in the Village of Cleves OPERATING CODE and the GCWW exemption dated January 22, 2012 have proved to be ineffective. Division E of the OPERATING CODE for the Village of Cleves, Ohio, Department of WATER WORKS SYSTEM is being rewritten to addresses billing and payment of water charges and shall apply to all USERS.
The following rules, regulations and policies are established by order of the Village Administrator effective October 1, 2015 in order to provide for the safe, economical and efficient management and protection of the public utility system for the Village of Cleves.
