Utility Service and Non-ad Valorem Assessment Rates, Fees and Charges

The rate resolution includes Utilities billing rates, miscellaneous charges, service charges, water and wastewater capacity fees, building permit review fees, and utility construction permit/inspection fees.

Water and sewer capacity fees are collected for any new connection to the county's water and/or sewer system based on an equivalent dwelling units (EDU) formula.

These fees represent a new connection's proportionate share of the costs of providing facility capacity to serve new connections; and it will produce revenues not in excess of those required to provide water and wastewater system facilities in order to serve the additional demands and needs on the system.
