Why is there a stormwater fee?
The City created a stormwater utility fee to fund the Federal and State mandated Phase II Stormwater Program. The City’s Stormwater Management Program is funded completely through this stormwater fee. This is a separate utility fee, not tax dollars. The residential fee is $3 per month. The nonresidential fee is based on the amount of impervious surfaces on each property at $3 per 2,500 square feet of impervious surfaces per month.
