6121.043 Collection of charges for waste water facilities service area.

If a governmental agency fails to pay any charge imposed pursuant to an order issued under section 6121.041 of the Revised Code within sixty days of the date due, such charge shall be deducted from the amount of the undivided local government fund to which the agency is entitled pursuant to section 5747.51 or 5747.53 of the Revised Code, and shall be paid directly to the Ohio water development authority. If a person fails to pay a charge within sixty days of the date due, the authority shall certify such charge to the county auditor, who shall place the charge on the real property tax list and duplicate against the property served. Such charge becomes a lien on such property from the date it is certified by the authority, and shall be collected in the manner that taxes are ordinarily collected and forwarded to the authority.

Any revenues or other moneys pledged against obligations which are collected by the authority in the operation of a single or regional system of waste water facilities shall first be applied to the payment of debt service on such obligations. No action of the authority relieves a governmental agency of any duty which it may have to pay such obligations.
