  • Chapter 435 AN ACT RELATIVE TO THE SEWER SYSTEM OF THE TOWN OF WARE.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is forthwith to further regulate the town of Ware’s sewer system, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same as follows:

SECTION 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of chapter 75 of the acts of 1963 to the contrary, the board of selectmen of the town of Ware shall have all of the powers pertaining to the construction, operation, expansion, maintenance and regulation of that town’s sewer system, and the enforcement of its regulations pertaining thereto, which are conferred on cities and towns under the General Laws, including, without limitation, the power to set rates, charges, interest rates and civil penalties.

SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.

Approved December 30, 2008
