Stormwater Utility Credit Application Available Now
Starting July 1st, 2023, the Town will shift from funding Stormwater services through the town's general fund, to a more equitable and sustainable Stormwater Utility Fee structure. Property Owners are encouraged to view the brief stormwater utility fee video created by the town to learn more about stormwater funding, use of stormwater funds and more.
The Stormwater Utility Fee structure is a community based solution to a community based problem. It rewards residential, commercial, and industrial property owners by allocating up to 50% credit on their stormwater utility fee.
There is 25% credit for stormwater "treatment" and a 25% credit on stormwater "storage". Below is a brief breakdown of the available credits...
