Can I appeal or dispute my stormwater utility fee charge?

The stormwater utility fee is assessed on all properties within Apex corporate limits regardless of tax status.  However, you may appeal your charge if you feel one of the following applies:

  1. Incorrect ownership – The property does not belong to you.
  2. Incorrect impervious surface – The delineated amount of impervious surface on the parcel is incorrect.
  3. Incorrect property designation – The property is designated as non-residential but is actually residential or vice versa.
  4. Incorrect tier – A residential property is being billed at the wrong tier.
