The proposed stormwater program is based on a base rate utility. This means that properties (both residential and non-residential) in the Township would be charged one base rate. This utility base rate has no relationship to property size but is in relation to costs necessary to operate the system. No singularly owned residential properties (single family homes, townhouses, etc.) would be proposed to pay anything more that the base user rate.
The fee is paid by landowners, which includes homeowners, businesses, nonprofits, churches, colleges, school districts, and municipal agencies.
