What is the Stormwater Utility Fee on my bill and what will it be used for?

This fee will better enable the Town to maintain the stormwater system, with assigned staff dedicating 100 percent of their time to maintaining roadside ditches, the underground storm system and box culverts. The fee will allow the Town to obtain the proper equipment for the maintenance of this system and move forward with stormwater projects that will help to resolve some of the Town’s flooding issues. In addition, the fee will assist in designing and building recharge projects to help replenish the Town’s aquifer by slowing stormwater and allowing it to absorb into the aquifer, benefitting every resident of Prescott Valley. Historically these services were funded from fees that should pay for other Town services.
