Background and Analysis:

Background and analysis has not changed from first to second reading.

 

On December 15, 2020, Council passed Ordinance No. 7261 setting the 2021 utility fees and charges. Section D, 1.a. of Chapter 4.24.010 inadvertently set the storm and surface water fee for “Plats approved after 1990 with signed maintenance agreement” at $13.00, when it should be $13.99. The change will accurately reflect the 7.5 percent increase to the Storm and Surface Water utility rate for 2021.

 

The attached ordinance amends this amount within OMC subsection 4.24.010(D)(1)(a).

 

Neighborhood/Community Interests (if known):

N/A

 

Options:

1.    Approve the ordinance amending the storm and surface water fee for “Plats approved after 1990 with signed maintenance agreement.”

2.    Do not approve the ordinance as written and direct staff to modify the ordinance.

Financial Impact:

The implication of this error is an estimated loss of approximately $100 to $120 to date in Storm and Surface Water revenues. The change will accurately reflect the Storm and Surface Water utility rate increase for 2021.
