Service Charge Increase?
City Council is considering increasing the stormwater utility
service charge that all Lakewood property owners pay annually so that flooding
problems in the city can be fixed faster. It would take decades with current
funding to complete improvements to Lakewood’s stormwater system to reduce
flooding and damage to homes, businesses, roads and other facilities.
City Council is considering two options: increasing the charge to $3.70 or to
$6.24 a month for single-family homeowners. The rates paid for other types of
property would increase proportionally to the single-family homeowner rate. City
Council also is considering the option of future annual service charge
adjustments based on inflation and perhaps advising that a future City Council
consider reducing the charge after additional improvements are completed.
