Staff Contact: W. Dave Canaan, LUESA - Storm Water Services

Presentation: No


BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:
In 1994, the County started charging a Storm Water fee to fund the administration of storm water management programs to improve water quality, reduce flood losses and repair/maintain the storm drainage system.

Minor System Component for the City of Charlotte: By Interlocal Agreement, the minor system of the storm water system is defined as ditches, swales, pipes, etc that drain less than 1 square mile and is the responsibility of the City inside the City limits.

Tier I (<2,000 square feet of impervious area) from $5.52 to $5.85
Tier II (2,000 to <3,000 square feet of impervious area) from $8.13 to $8.62
Tier III (3,000 to <5,000 square feet of impervious area) from $12.04 to $12.76
Tier IV (>5,000 square feet of impervious area) from $19.91 to $21.11

All Other Properties (per month)
The fee will increase from $143.73 to $152.35, per acre of impervious area
