Written Comments Requested for Development Fee Proposal

Post Date:03/09/2018

During last year’s session of the North Carolina General Assembly, the Public Water and Sewer System Development Fee Act, S.L. 2017-138 was passed to clarify a local government utility’s authority to assess upfront charges for water and sewer. As part of the new law, local governments are required to contract with a financial professional or licensed professional engineer to perform an analysis regarding how to calculate the fee schedule.  

Earlier this year, Dare County contracted with Raftelis Financial Consulting to complete an analysis to develop cost-justified water system development fees. Click here to view the full report.  

Dare County is accepting written comments regarding the proposal through April 27, 2018. To submit your comments, complete the System Development Fee Study Comment Form. All submissions will be reviewed for consideration of possible modifications or revisions.
