What is the Stormwater Enterprise Fund?
A new stormwater utility fee and stormwater enterprise fund was included as part of the adopted Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Plan in order to provide a stable, dedicated funding for the city’s stormwater management program. The revenue generated by the utility fee cannot be used for purposes beyond those identified for the stormwater management program - both operating and capital project budget. Creating an enterprise fund for stormwater eliminates annual competition for funds within the budget and aids long-range planning for funding of major stormwater improvements.
