Storm Water Utility

What is the Storm Water Utility?

The storm water utility fee is charged against all developed parcels within the City based on the premise of “contributors pay.” Where land is in a natural state, most rain soaks into the ground or is retained in small depressions. Where development has been prevalent, rooftops, driveways, and parking lots prevent rainfall from soaking into the ground. The rain runs off into streets, ditches, ponds and lakes, creating the need for drainage systems and to protect the quality of our water resources. Developed parcels with water and/or sewer utility service pay this fee monthly; developed parcels without water and/or sewer service pay this fee annually.

City Implements Utility Franchise Fees to Fund Street Maintenance and Street Lighting Programs

The City of Baxter’s street system is one of the most valuable and costly assets owned by the city. Extending the asset’s life through regular maintenance with a pavement management plan (PMP) provides the lowest possible cost to the city and its stakeholders.  A PMP uses actual condition data to estimate the best time to complete maintenance activities.   Regular maintenance, including a sealcoating program, extends the life of streets and lowers the overall cost of the street investment by avoiding the need for more frequent and costly reconstruction projects.
