DON’T ROLL THE DICE with YOUR CITY UTILITY
The City of Cedar Park has hired marketing consultants.
The consultants where directed to investigate proposing a new city “FEE” (min $2.89, max $11.16) per household at or below 3345 sq ft., monthly.
This fee will be added to your city utility bill as a monthly charge. ($34.69 min, $133.92 annual total fee
On the website for the Storm Water Drainage Solution http://cpstormwater.businesscatalyst.com/ there is a survey.
We encourage you to look this website over, and cast your vote for “NONE”.
If we select a package, we leave ourselves open to a “FEE” that will NEVER go away and that fee will likely increase over time.
SOLUTION? Roll back the ad valor em tax rate to the 2012 rates ( approx +$35 ) to cover the needed infrastructure improvement and maintenance cost.
Is it political suicide to increase the tax rate? I think not. What is suicidal is adding a FEE a.k.a. “TAX” that will continually increase over time.
Storm Water Fee… Impervious Cover Fee… What ever they want to call it, it will be a added TAX that will simply rise over time.
NO STORM WATER RUNOFF Fee! a.k.a. hidden "TAX"
