User fees will supplement the total cost of the City’s stormwater maintenance program. It is important to note that all monies collected through user fees will be designated for stormwater related purposes only, and cannot be used for other City expenditures or programs. If the total amount collected annually is not used in a budget year, the excess user fees will roll over into the next budget year and be designated for stormwater purposes only. In some cases where the City has plans for large capital improvement projects, the user fees may purposefully be allowed to accumulate for more than one budget year.
User fees will be used to support the stormwater management program which includes but is not limited to: administering the NPDES permit, drainage maintenance, monthly street sweeping, annual creek debris removal maintenance, monitoring and sampling for water quality, and planning, design and construction of facility improvements.
