2. (1) In determining the levy payable by a participating municipality to an authority for maintenance costs pursuant to subsection 27 (2) of the Act, the authority shall apportion such costs to the participating municipalities on the basis of the benefit derived or to be derived by each participating municipality determined,

(a) by agreement among the authority and the participating municipalities; or

(b) by calculating the ratio that each participating municipality’s modified assessment bears to the total authority’s modified assessment. O. Reg. 670/00, s. 2 (1).

(2) In determining the levy payable by a participating municipality to an authority for administration costs pursuant to subsection 27 (3) of the Act, the authority shall apportion such costs to the participating municipalities on the basis of the ratio that each participating municipality’s modified assessment bears to the total authority’s modified assessment. O. Reg. 670/00, s. 2 (2).

3. The following rules apply for the purposes of section 2:
