Be It Enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa:

ing consistent with the requirements of section 384.50, one or more districts and schedules of fees for the connection of property to the city sewer or water utility. Each person whose property will be served by connecting to the city sewer or water utility shall pay a connection fee to the city. The ordinance shall be certified by the city and recorded in the office of the county recorder of the county in which a district is located. The connection fees are due and payable when a utility connection application is filed with the city. A connection fee shall not exceed the equitable part of the total original cost to the city of extending the utility to the properties within the district, less any part of the cost which has been previously assessed or paid to the city under this division IV. All fees collected under this subsection shall be paid to the city treasurer. The moneys collected as fees shall only be used for the purposes of oper- ating the utility, or to pay debt service on obligations issued to finance improvements or exten- sions to the utility.
