Stormwater Utility Rates
Stormwater and Flood Management Rates Explained
Due to inflation, utility rate increases are necessary to cover rising operating costs for electricity, chemicals, materials and equipment. Utility rate increases also cover the rising construction costs associated with replacing or upgrading aging utilities infrastructure. New regional, state and federal regulatory requirements for upgraded treatment processes also increase utility costs.
Utility revenue increases are considered by City Council in October of each year as part of the citywide budget process. Utility rates are set so that sufficient revenues are generated to support operations, maintenance and improvements for each of the city utilities, which have different calculations of fixed costs.
