On December 5, 2019, City Council approved Resolution No. 128-19 that established fees for the review and approval by the Stormwater Enterprise (SWENT) of planning, development, and construction-related submittals for compliance with the City’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit, the City’s Drainage Criteria Manual (DCM) requirements, and the City Code.  This resolution also included a 5% increase each year until 2023.

Starting January 1, 2020, new submittals to SWENT will be assessed review fees as per the chart below.  Documents submitted prior to January 1, 2020 and are still ‘in the review process’ will not be assessed a review fee. To be considered ‘in the review process,’ a document requiring resubmittal must be submitted within 6 months of the last review comments; otherwise, it will be considered a new submittal and assessed a review fee.
