City Council Regular
Consider Resolution 19-41 Storm Water Drainage Rate Increase
Francine Hanson, Finance Director
Staff recommends an increase to storm water drainage rates.
A ten percent increase in storm water drainage rates was approved and implemented in 2018. At that time, based on projections of the next few years, staff informed Council that rate increases in future years will likely be needed to keep the Storm Water Drainage Fund in a positive operating position. In the 2019 approved budget, rates were budgeted to increase by an additional ten percent.
As you know, the City is required to participate in the comprehensive local surface water management plan to meet requirements detailed in MN Statues103B. This plan was recently completed and presented to Council on February 5, 2019. Additional expenditures will occur as the City addresses several key areas with respect to water use within the City that are outlined in the plan.
Proposed ten percent rate increases are as follows:
Residential rates per quarter
Non-residential rates per quarter
Park and Open Space
Elementary & Middle Schools
High Schools/Junior Colleges
Other Public & Semi-public property
This increase, if adopted at this meeting, will become effective starting with the District 3 billing sent out on May 1, 2019
Adopt Resolution 19-41 Establishing Storm Water Rates.
