2021 Tiered Billing Method:

Reminder to residents: 2021 Stormwater bills were sent out February 15th by Keystone Collections. All 2020 invoices must have been paid in full by December 31st, 2020 in order to receive any credits on your 2021 bill. If your 2020 Stormwater invoice was paid in full by December 31st, you will have a ONE TIME courtesy 50% COVID refund applied to your 2021 invoice. The 50% refund is based off your 2020 payment.

The Authority board extended the ONE TIME COVID refund to delinquent accounts that pay their 2020 invoice before the end of June 2021. After that date, you forfeited your COVID credit for good. The credit will show up on your 2022 invoice.


If you feel the impervious area on your parcel is incorrect, you may file an appeal.  Appeals for the 2022 Stormwater billing will be accepted until May 15th, 2022.  The rates, rules and regulations state you have 60 days from the billing to appeal.  No appeal applications will be accepted for the 2020 and 2021 Stormwater billings.
