How much is the Storm Water Utility fee?
The Storm Water Utility fee is based on impervious surface area within the City. A sampling of the City's residential dwelling units was used to determine the amount of impervious surface to calculate for an ERU (Equivalent Residential Unit). After the ERU was calculated each residential dwelling unit was defined as one (1) ERU, which equals 3,300 sq. ft. of impervious surface and starting January 1, 2016 a residential property shall be billed at $4.50 per month.
Developed non-residential property (including commercial, industrial, institutional, governmental and multi-family) fees are calculated by taking measurements of their impervious surfaces and dividing by 3,300 sq. ft. which determines the number of ERU's that apply to the development. Starting January 1, 2016, all non-residential property shall be billed at $4.50 per ERU per month.
