Stormwater Discharge Rate Increase
City utility customers will soon see a slight increase in their utility bills.
During the July 12th meeting City Council voted to raise the Stormwater Discharge Fee.
The rate increase is a tiered system based on the amount of impermeable surfaces (buildings, roads, parking areas, pools, patios, sheds and other construction covering the natural land surface) on the property. The smallest increase is two cents. Click here to view the tiers and rates.
The rate increase goes into effect August 12, 2016.
The stormwater discharge fee was established in 2009 and this is the first rate increase since its implementation. Fees collected fund a stormwater discharge program as required by the State of Texas.
