Municipal ordinance

Cheboygan, MI |

ordinance says that if city is put on notice that tenant is responsible for water/sewer bills they can not be added to property taxes, so now city sends letter that says since you took advantage of ordinance 123.125 not allowing water bill on property tax, they want me to sigh letter saying that they intend to just shut water off and it will not be turned on till paid by me if tenant does not pay.

Makes sense

Either pay via property tax bill or pay outside the bill. Either way, you pay to avoid shut off.



it seems that shutting off water is defeating point of ordinance which makes tenant responsible for water bill if city is put on notice, much like gas and electric bills that follow tenant not the landlord
