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.
Connections may include those in franchise utilities and service areas where wholesale water service is provided by the county to the franchise and sewer system either through a new connection or a connection already in place.
- Also, changes in occupancy for existing buildings.
- Most fees are collected upon the issuance of a building permit.
