How was the amount of the fee decided?

City staff used a combination of data sources to determine the total amount of impervious coverage in the city for the various classes (residential, commercial, government, etc.). The total square footage was then divided by the yearly program cost to get the cost per square foot. Residential customers were placed in several classes based on the total impervious coverage at their residences. Commercial customers were assessed a rate according to their total impervious coverage.
