What does my base and user fee pay for?

The stormwater base fee, implemented in 2012, is to pay for stormwater department employees and day to day operations, which include street sweeping and cleaning/maintaining stormwater pipes and drains. The stormwater user fee is to fund capital improvement projects for the utility. These projects range from replacement of failing or failed stormwater pipes and drains to installing new stormwater pipe and drainage systems within city limits.
