Is anyone exempt from the charges?
Unlike property taxes, no property is exempt from the stormwater user fee charge. The exceptions are those properties that are Georgia Department of Transportation roadways, underdeveloped properties (i.e. no impervious surfaces on the property) and those properties that do not ultimately discharge stormwater runoff to the City drainage system either directly or indirectly.
