AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE THE TOWN OF SPINDALE AND THE CAPE FEAR PUBLIC UTILITY AUTHORITY TO ATTACH PERSONAL PROPERTY, GARNISH WAGES, AND PLACE LIENS ON CERTAIN REAL PROPERTY TO COLLECT UNPAID FEES FOR SEWER AVAILABILITY.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition:
Changes the short and long titles.
Deletes language concerning the validity and attachment of liens on real property, as they applied to the Town of Spindale.
Adds two sections, applying only to the Cape Fear Utility Authority, allowing the Authority to adopt ordinances to provide for the collection of a delinquent sewer availability fee in the same manner as delinquent property taxes after the fee has remained unpaid for 90 days. Provides delinquent fees collected pursuant to this section are considered a lien on the real property. Requires any ordinance adopted pursuant to this provision to provide for an appeals process. Provides that no provisions in the act are intended to alter or modify the priority of a lien established for city and county taxes. Further provides that any debt due the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority is expressly subordinate to any city or county tax.
