The deposit will be equal to the charges for services likely to be incurred during a period of three (3) months or two (2) billing periods, whichever is greater. This estimate shall be established by the Finance Officer or his/her designee based upon the size of the service, the nature of the use of the property and the experience with similar uses in the City. Failure to make the deposit will warrant the discontinuation or denial of service.
