HEARING REQUIRED:  Public

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

The City of Pensacola established a stormwater assessment fee in 2001 to provide a dedicated funding source for stormwater management costs.  Since its inception, the fee has generated over $45 million in revenue.  To continue to receive stormwater assessment revenue, it is necessary that City Council conduct a public hearing on August 18, 2022 to adopt the annual assessment resolution imposing stormwater service assessments and to approve the 2022 Stormwater Service Assessment Roll.

 

For the City of Pensacola, an Equivalent Stormwater Unit or ESU represents 2,998 square feet of impervious surface.  In 2021, Council approved a rate increase of $3.88 per ESU to raise the City’s ESU assessment rate to $76.12. This year staff is also recommending an increase of $3.88 per ESU to raise the assessment rate to $80.00 per ESU.
