PART II. ELECTRIC SERVICE

DIVISION 1. IN GENERAL

Sec. 27-26. New Service Installation.

(a) A charge of two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) will be made for initial service at a new service location where a temporary service is initially provided for construction or other purpose. An additional service charge of thirty dollars ($30.00) will be made at such time that the service is changed from temporary to permanent. (See Sec. 27-2 (b)).

In addition, to the extent that the City is required to extend its facilities to provide for new service installation, the customer shall be required to pay all construction costs associated with extending electric distribution facilities beyond a one-pole span or equivalent underground distance.

 

The City Council reserves the right to waive any connection or service fee for new installations when it is deemed to be in the best interest of the health, safety, and welfare of the public.


(b) A separate electric meter shall be required to be installed for each residential or commercial unit, whether that unit will be a dwelling house, mobile home apartment or any unit of a multiunit building. This requirement shall not apply to overnight rentals located in registered mobile home parks.

 

Sec. 27-33. Miscellaneous Service.

(a) Service upgrade. In the event that a customer requests a service upgrade such as an increase in voltage or a change in configuration of service, the customer shall remit to the City the actual costs incurred with respect thereto. Such costs as determined by the City shall include, but not be limited to, the cost of materials used, labor, equipment, and an allowable for overhead.

(b) Underground service. Based on the discretion of the City regarding the availability of such services, the customer shall pay actual installation cost of such underground services. Such costs, as determined by the City and to be paid by the customer, shall include, but not be limited to, the actual cost of materials used, labor, equipment, and an allowance for overhead. For new services, these costs shall represent the net difference of installing such services underground as opposed to providing such services overhead. The Bushnell City Council reserves the right to waive the connection or service fees when it is deemed in the best interest of the health, welfare, and safety of the public.
