Connection to or use of City utility services for property located outside the City limits shall not be allowed until such property is annexed into the City; provided, however, that exceptions can be made by the City Council, where connection is required due to public health emergencies, where pre-existing contractual obligations limit the City’s ability to require annexation, or as otherwise provided in the Growth Management Act, RCW 36.70A.110(4), as now or hereafter amended. For properties in the NE Sewer Area no annexation shall be permitted unless and until a covenant and agreement as required by Ordinance 2252 from each property in the area to be annexed is executed. The City shall not be obligated to extend sewers or increase the capacity of its sewer system to accommodate an annexation in the NE Sewer Area. (Ord. 2153, 2008; Ord. 2252, 2013)
