The Town of Nashville created a stormwater utility fee effective July 1, 2017. The revenue generated from this fee will fund the stormwater program. This program consists of clearing drainage easements, cleaning storm drains, maintaining open ditches within the town's right-of-way, street sweeping, and providing loose leaf collections.
The fee is based on impervious surface on each developed parcel within town limits. Impervious surface is a surface which, because of its composition or compacted nature, impedes or prevents natural infiltration of water into the soil, including but not limited to: roofs, solid decks, driveways, patios, sidewalks, parking areas, or private streets. Each developed residential property pays $30 a year, while each developed non-residential property pays $30 per 2,500 square feet of impervious surface per year.
Loose Leaf Truck was purchased with stormwater utility fee revenue and is utilized to clear yard debris that can block storm drains and ditches.
