Where the correctness of a rate or charge imposed under this chapter is disputed and where complaint of such incorrectness has been made prior to the time the usual penalty would be imposed, and where the adjusting of such complaint requires additional time, the penalty may be held in abeyance up to and including the tenth day succeeding the resending of such bill.
The rates and charges calculated and applied under Section 3-12-060 shall be recited upon a unified statement of charges. The unified statement of charges shall be prepared and sent to the billed party in such time periods as established by the comptroller.

An accrued past due sewer service liability in excess of $10,000.00 may subject the owner of the subject property to an additional penalty, to be imposed in a separate hearing, in an amount not less than $50.00 and not more than $500.00 for the delinquency. Each day that a past due service liability exceeds $10,000.00 shall constitute a separate delinquency. In determining whether to impose this additional penalty, the hearing officer may consider all reasons for the failure to make timely payment.

When such charges have been delinquent for a period of 60 days, the comptroller may cause a statement of lien to be recorded against the premises served and delinquent in the form and manner provided by law. The failure to record such a lien or to send notice thereof shall not affect the right of the city to foreclose or adjudicate such lien, by an equitable action in accordance with the statutory requirements therefor and in the same manner as provided for water service in Section 11-12-490, et seq., of this Code. The comptroller shall execute releases of such liens on behalf of the city upon receipt of payment thereof.

Eligible tenant water users shall receive only 1 annual credit per eligible customer. However, where there are multiple tenants sharing rent in a household, the credit shall be divided among those who are on the lease or rental agreement or who otherwise verify that they are eligible tenant water users. For subleases, the credit shall be prorated for the time that the sublessee is an eligible tenant water user living in that household.



11-12-770 Amount of the water-for-all credit.
The water-for-all credit will be determined by the following formula:
C=B—{l x A)

If water service is master-metered and the owner bills the cost of service to a tenant water user on an allocated basis, the recipient's estimated annual water and wastewater bill, based on evidence of prior billings occurring during the tenant recipient's current lease or rental-agreement term and exclusive of the owner's administrative charges related to the allocation.
I = the recipient's estimated annual household income.
A = affordability threshold as follows:
if the recipient's annual household income is 50% or less than the federal government's official poverty income guidelines. A will equal 0%.
if the recipient's annual household income is greater than 50% but less than 100% of the federal government's official poverty income guidelines. A will equal 1%.
if the recipient's annual household income is greater than 100% of the federal government's official poverty income guidelines. A will equal 1.5%.
For all negative values of C. the water-for-all credit will be zero dollars. The annual water-for-all credit will be prorated to reflect the date of the recipient's enrollment in the program.

11-12-780 Income counted.

In calculating annual household income for both eligibility and amount of the water-for-all credit, the Commissioner shall use the same countable and non-countable income as established by the Illinois Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.


11-12-790 Distribution of the water-for-all credit.
The water-for-all credit shall be applied to the water or wastewater bill or sent to each recipient as follows:
(a) Distribution of the credit shall begin as soon as practicable after the eligible user applies for the program, but in no case shall it be later than 90 days after a complete application demonstrating a user's eligibility for the program is received.

The credit for a tenant water user whose water and wastewater utility service is master-metered and billed to the customer by the owner on an allocated basis shall be disbursed by check payable to the tenant water user.
Users who are billed on a monthly basis may elect to receive credits disbursed on a monthly basis in an amount equal to one-twelfth of the annual credit. Users who are billed on a bimonthly basis may elect to receive credits on a bimonthly basis in an amount equal to one-sixth of the annual credit. Users billed on a semiannual basis may elect to receive credits disbursed on a semiannual basis in an amount equal to one-half of the annual credit.
The credit shall be applied to each subsequent bill until the full amount of the credit is exhausted.
At the end of each calendar year, for users eligible for the Water-for-AII Program for the following year, the Commissioner shall apply any unused credit to the recipient's bills for the following year.

11-12-800 Distribution of credit in case of termination of service-When a recipient terminates service, the unused credit shall be dispersed according the following priorities:
within 45 days of termination of service, the Commissioner shall apply any unused balance to the recipient's account before any other credits or deposits are applied when determining the account balance due to or from the user; -
when a recipient changes his or her principal residence and remains in a unit that is provided water and wastewater services by the Department, any unused credit shall be transferred to the new account of the recipient:
in the event of the death of a recipient, the unused credit shall be transferred to a new account of a surviving member of the decedent's household who is an eligible residential user in his or her own right: and
