612 Associates, L.L.C. v. North Bergen Municipal Utilities Authority (A-13-11; 067931)

Each sewerage authority that serves a property for the purpose of handling and treating sewage, whether through a direct or indirect connection, may charge a non-duplicative connection fee that reflects the use of its system and contributes toward its system’s cost. In this case, the connection fee was paid into an escrow account by plaintiff 612 Associates, which created an interpleader action that relieved it of any further obligation, therefore the trial court’s apportionment of the fee between the parties was not an abuse of discretion. 3-7-13
