New, strict legislation requires the city to treat stormwater runoff before it leaves the storm drainage system and enters our local bays and surface waters. Fees are charged to pay for this collection and to develop a future drainage system that will protect our environment and keep our streets from flooding during heavy rains. The fee you are charged is based on the amount of impervious surface at your property, or the square footage that does not allow rain to be absorbed into the ground.
All single family properties are charged one flat fee. All other properties are charged a multiple of this rate. Every utility customer pays a monthly stormwater fee, regardless of whether or not other services on the property have been discontinued.
Effective October 1, 2016
(Within City limits only)
* Single Family Residence - $9.00
All other properties are charged a multiple of the above rate based on the amount of each property's impervious surface.
