(b) A parcel or tract of real estate in the Annexation Territory shall be exempt from the requirements of subsection (a) to connect to sanitary sewer if the following conditions related to such parcel or tract are met: (i) a valid permit for the construction and operation of an on-site sewage system has been issued by the Jasper Department of Health or its successor responsible for the regulation of on-site sewage system; (ii) an operational on-site sewage system exists on such parcel or tract that is not suffering from system failure (defined below) and has not suffered from system failure after the date on which sanitary sewer has been extended to within three hundred (300) feet of the parcel's boundary or property line, and (iii) such tract or parcel has not been sold, transferred or conveyed after the Effective Date.
