Stormwater Assessment Program

The Stormwater Assessment Program includes a Service Assessment and a proposed Improvement Assessment. The Service Assessment has been in existence since 2003 as described in Ordinance 2003-937. The Improvement Assessment will be addressed at a Public Hearing on September 1, 2016 at 6pm in City Council Chambers. Please see below for additional information about the program.

Service Assessment – Annual Non-Ad Valorem assessment that pays for operations and maintenance of the existing stormwater system.  Services include street sweeping, pond maintenance, pipeline system cleaning, outfall cleaning, ditch maintenance and miscellaneous micro-projects ancillary to maintenance activities.

Improvement Assessment - Annual Non-Ad Valorem assessment, if approved on September 1st, would pay for capital improvements associated with the stormwater system in the Central and Lower Improvement Area.  Improvements include system capacity increases, treatment facilities such as ponds, ditches and baffle boxes, new pipelines and box culverts, pump stations, backflow valves, inlets, curb and gutter systems, as well as roadway regrading to improve flow patterns.
