Notice of Public Hearing for Proposed Changes to Stormwater Rate Structure

A 20% increase is proposed, changing the Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU) fee (from $75/year to $90/year). A new residential tier ($180/year) for residential properties with greater than 6000 square feet of impervious surface is also proposed. 

The complete draft rate structure is at this link. Relevant information from recent public meetings can be found here (September 10th) and here (November 12th). The most recent monthly report on Stormwater Utility activities can be found here.

This FAQ document provides a synopsis of why the rate structure amendments are needed and what the increased revenue will support.

In addition to providing input at the Public Hearing, citizen's can provide written input on the proposed changes to the rate structure prior to the hearing by emailing

Drop in sessions to learn more about the proposed changes are scheduled for December 12th and January 9th at Town Hall from 5:00 pm-6:30 pm.
