Upon receipt of an approved development permit, the successful applicant must pay applicable charges. All monies collected are deposited into the SSSF and used to build new major sanitary trunk sewers under the approved Sanitary Servicing Strategy plan. SSTC shall be levied when development or building permit is issued for development, redevelopment or renovations on the premises.

 Demolished dwelling units (3): $1,712 x 3=  $5,136 (B)
 SSTC charge=  $13,194 (A-B)
