§ 15-468. Authorization.  


Latest version.
  • (a)

    The board is hereby authorized to impose stormwater assessments against developed property located within the stormwater service area to fund all or any portion of the stormwater service cost.

    (b)

    The stormwater service cost shall be assessed against all parcels of developed property within the stormwater service area at a rate of assessment based upon the special benefit accruing to such developed property from the county's provision of stormwater management services, measured by the number of ESUs attributable to each parcel or classification of developed property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if it is specifically determined by the board that any portion of the stormwater service area receives a distinct special benefit from any component of the stormwater management service that is materially different in kind or degree from the special benefit received by other portions of the stormwater service area, the stormwater service cost related to such component shall be assessed against the portion of the stormwater service area receiving the distinct special benefit.

    (c)

    Stormwater assessments shall be payable annually and shall be computed as for each parcel of developed property as such parcel's share of all or any portion of the stormwater service cost to be funded from proceeds of the stormwater assessment, based upon the number of ESUs attributable to such parcel. Nothing contained in this article shall be construed to require or preclude the imposition of stormwater assessments against government property.

    (d)

    All proceeds of the stormwater assessments shall be expended for the provision of stormwater management services within the stormwater service area.
