STORMWATER FEES – JANUARY 2019
In 2018 the established a new Stormwater Utility based on recommendations from the Stormwater Utility Study completed to address the water runoff and potential for flooding. The City’s business owners have also demanded the City take steps to ensure the downtown doesn’t flood and proposed litigation if the City didn’t address the problems with the stormwater system. The City implemented the Utility which includes a fee per property owner based on the impervious (developed) surface of the lots. The base fee is based on the average of lot sizes for most residential single family-homes and will be $5.50 per month. Commercial and Industrial users will see larger monthly fees based on their lot sizes. The fee will be assessed beginning in January on the utility bills issued on January 31, 2019.
