Commercial Stormwater Rates

2020 Rate Changes

Stormwater: 2% increase for infrastructure improvements    

Rates pay for construction and maintenance of our stormwater system, which helps protect residents and businesses during storms and floods. All developed properties within city limits pay stormwater rates, based on:

  1. Lot Size - lot area in square feet, plus the customer's share of open space in the development, if applicable
  2. Base Rate - $0.00453
  3. Rate Factor - based on the percentage of impervious area (surfaces that do not absorb water) such as buildings, parking lots and concrete
