(a) The board may charge standby charges for water, sewer, or water and sewer services pursuant to the Uniform Standby Charge Procedures Act (Chapter 12.4 (commencing with Section 54984) of Part 1 of Division 2 of Title 5).
(b) If the procedures set forth in the former Section 25210.77b as it read at the time a standby charge was established were followed, the board may, by resolution, continue to collect the charge in successive years at the same rate from the parcels within the county service area to which water or sewers are made available for any purpose by the county service area, whether the water or sewers are actually used or not. If new, increased, or extended assessments are proposed, the board shall comply with the notice, protest, and hearing procedures in Section 53753.
