Why do we have a stormwater utility fee?
The City of Oskaloosa created a stormwater utility fee in September 2007. The utility fee raises the revenues needed to fund the stormwater and surface drainage system. This program brings us into compliance with federal regulations and safeguards our community through improved drainage and protection of local waters.
A stormwater utility fee charges properties in City of Oskaloosa based on that property's contribution to the need for stormwater management. The utility uses the amount of impervious surface on a property as the primary basis for the fee. Review the regulations that apply to stormwater utility fee.Title 8, Chapter 8.28
