Perry caps stormwater utility fees for non-residential properties | Politics | Macon.com

Perry City Council worked toward a second phase in implementing stormwater utility districts, placing caps Tuesday on the amounts nonresidential properties will pay for the new utility fee.

Lee Gilmour, city manager, said commercial, industrial and institutional property owners will pay no more than $1,200 per meter annually or $2,400 per parcel of land.

The General Assembly passed a law that went into effect this year requiring cities to set up stormwater utility fees to help fund stormwater system maintenance and capital improvements. The fees are more expensive for the commercial, industrial and institutional property owners because those structures typically eliminate most of the natural surface where stormwater would typically seep into the ground. Instead, stormwater rolls off the impervious surfaces and requires a system to collect it or risk flooding.
