Storm Water Rate Change

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.
