The governing body of any city may, in the granting of a franchise to a private corporation
furnishing water service to its inhabitants, in addition to the other provisions authorized
by law, impose a provision in such franchise that the water corporation shall bill
and collect sewer service charges lawfully established by the city, including a provision
that the corporation shall discontinue water service to any customer using or required
by law to use the sanitary sewer system of the city under stated conditions; and
such a corporation shall have authority to collect such charges and to discontinue
water service as provided in the franchise. The franchise shall not require the billing and collecting of such sewer service charges
without making provision for payment by the city to the water corporation of such
compensation as shall reimburse the corporation for its expenses in billing and collecting
such sewer service charges: Provided, That no obligation shall be imposed on the water corporation to bring any action
at law to enforce collection of such charges.
