If you are living within the City of Decatur, you will pay the stormwater utility service charge. All properties benefit from the City’s stormwater management program and revenue brought in by the stormwater utility will be used to improve flooding issues around the City.
The City has 46 known flooding areas. We can’t fix all of them at one time. We plan to start work on the Top 10 and when these are done we will work on another 10 until each one is fixed. A portion of the fees collected will also go towards maintaining existing drainage systems that do work well.
