Authority Adjusts Fees for 2017

The Authority Board is required by the Intergovernmental Agreement by which it was formed in 2008 to review its System Development Fees (for new construction) and its Stormwater Service Fees (Annual Fees) on a biennial basis.   Both these fees have not increased since the Authority was formed in 2008 and began to collect fees in 2009.  Late last year (2016) the Authority Board voted to increase both fees by 10% starting this year.  This increase does not affect the annual Stormwater Service Fee invoicing for 2016. The new rates will be assessed beginning with 2017 fees, which will be invoiced in 2018. This increase will enable the Authority to better address its obligations and pay off the CWCB loans sooner.  The results of the fee increase are summarized in the table below.
