The Town would like to advise the residents of the procedures with having a Water & Sewer installation completed for new buildings or residences.
Section 9(d)(3) of the Town of Marystown’s Water and Sewer Regulations reads as follows:
“Property owners requesting services to new buildings or premises constructed after the installation of the amins or for services to vacant lands, to which they will connect, shall pay the full cost of installing the service stub, plus the costs to repairs to any pavement that may have to be cut. The estimated cost of labour, materials and equipment hire for installation of the service shall be determined by the Town and work shall not commence until a deposit of $500.00 is made to the Town.
In addition, if pavement on a Town Street has to be cut, the property owner shall pay $5.00 per square foot, plus taxes, if applicable, to effect repairs. This will be determined by allowing for a maximum five (5) feet wide cut for installation of a normal service multiplied by the length of the cut. The estimated cost of this cut shall be determined by the Town and work shall not commence until a deposit of a further $500.00 is made to the Town. If the actual cost is greater than the deposit, the balance is due on completion of the service stub installation and must be paid by the property owner to the Town before the water service is turned on. If a refund is due to the property owner, a cheque will be issued by the Town or the amount can be applied against taxes if the owner desires.”
