The 190th General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT RELATIVE TO CERTAIN CHARGES AND FEES IN THE TOWN OF CHARLTON.

     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 any general or special law to the contrary, charges or fees assessed by another municipality to properties in the town of Charlton for water services pursuant to an intermunicipal agreement shall be deemed to be “municipal charges” or “local charges and fees” of the town of Charlton pursuant to sections 42A to 42F, inclusive, 57 and 58 of chapter 40 of the General Laws and for all actions taken in connection therewith. The town of Charlton shall have all the duties, powers and responsibilities set forth in said sections with regard to the charges to the same extent as if it was providing water services to properties in the town of Charlton. The town of Charlton may take action under said sections 42A to 42F, inclusive, 57 and 58 of said chapter 40 in the event the town of Charlton, rather than the recipient of water services in the town, is required to pay to the municipality providing water services any outstanding charges and fees in accordance with an intermunicipal agreement.
     SECTION 2.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.
