Procedure for Providing a Subsidyfor Sewer Connections for Existing Dwelling Units in Carrboro(Established 9/2/1997. Amend. 3/9/1999, 1/25/2005. Amend 5/7/19.)
Purpose:The Town of Carrboro created reserve of $120,000 over a six year period that was begun in 1995-96 to subsidize providing sewer to those existing dwelling units presently not served by OWASA.

Policy:The Town of Carrboro will pay OWASA a subsidy of $2,000 per dwelling unit in existence as of January 25, 2005 on behalf of a property owner to cover any fees due to OWASA for the connection of a dwelling unit to a public sewer main. This subsidy will be paid for only existing dwelling units within the corporate limits of Carrboro that are not served by OWASA sewer at the effective date of this policy. This subsidy will be redeemed on first come first served basis as long as the established reserve and its accumulated interest exist.
For homes in Historic Rogers Road Neighborhood connecting to a public sewer main owned by Orange County and qualifying as low to moderate income, the entirety, 100%, of costs associated with the connection will be paid by Orange County for a period of two years from the effective date of this policy. For one additional year, the third year from the effective date of this policy, 50% of the costs associated with the connection will be paid by Orange County. The Town of Carrboro will reimburse Orange County 14% of the costs of the connection for this three year period or $34,020, whichever is less.
Following the three year period, the Town of Carrboro will pay Orange County a subsidy of $2,000 per dwelling unit in existence as of January 25, 2005 in Historic Rogers Road Neighborhood on behalf of a property owner to cover any fees due to Orange County for the connection of a dwelling unit to a public sewer main owned by the county for the duration of time the county remains the owner of the sewer main lines in the neighborhood. This subsidy will be redeemed on first come first served basis as long as the established reserve and its accumulated interest exist.
Procedure:All eligible property owners who have contracted with OWASA to have their dwelling unit served by a public sewer and are interested in receiving the subsidy should contact the Town Clerk to complete a request for the subsidy. The Town Clerk will certify the eligibility of the request and notify OWASA. Upon receipt of an invoice, the Town will pay to OWASA $2,000 of the fees levied against the eligible property on behalf of the property owner.
