Why has the city added this fee?
The fee will fund the stormwater program which includes activities to maintain compliance with state and federal law. Due to the significant and ongoing cost of the program, the city council utilized an alternative to property taxes that is fairer and more equitable, similar to a user fee. Adding the costs of the program to the tax levy would have been a huge tax increase for property owners.
