Stormwater Utility Rate Changes Coming
RATE CHANGES COMING
Effective October 1, 2019, the City of St. Petersburg will be implementing a tiered billing structure for stormwater rates for single-family properties. This new tiered structure will classify single-family properties into tiers, based on the square footage of impervious surface area (surfaces that water runs off).
Non-single-family (commercial) properties will continue to be assessed a fee based on the number of Single-Family Residential Units (SFRU’s) their impervious area represents. One SFRU is equal to the impervious surface area of a typical single-family property in the City, which has been determined to be 2,388 square feet of impervious surface area.
Starting April 15, customers will be able to view their property’s fee assessment in the Stormwater Review and Appeals Portal at stpete.org/ratechanges. Through this portal, customers will be able to submit an appeal for reassessment if they feel the property has been measured incorrectly.
