Stormwater Ad Valorem Assessment
Improperly managed stormwater runoff may increase the occurrence of flooding, which endangers property and human welfare. The City has experienced higher costs to maintain its stormwater management program due to the negative affects of uncontrolled or improperly managed stormwater runoff into the waters of the Plantation ecosystem.
In the past, Stormwater Management has been funded through property taxes and other general fund revenues. Many needed projects have been postponed to pay for other critical operations such as police and fire. The City has made a decision to resolve past funding deficiencies through an adopted Stormwater Utility.
Notices were sent regarding the Stormwater Utility. For more information, please see the FAQs,
