Borough of Highspire Ordinance No. 612

The Borough Council of Highspire intends to vote on the enactment of an amendment to the Borough of Highspire’s Stormwater Management System User Fee Ordinance in the next sixty (60) days. A complete copy of the aforesaid Ordinance is available for inspection by any citizen at the Highspire Borough Office during normal business hours. A summary of the Ordinance is as follows:

The Borough Council of Highspire adopted the Borough of Highspire’s Stormwater Management System User Fee Ordinance, imposing an initial bimonthly User Fee to fund expenses associated with the Stormwater Management System and to fund a study to establish a permanent User Fee. The User Fee is imposed on each parcel within the Borough, irrespective of whether the parcel is taxable, unless specifically excluded from the User Fee. The study to establish a permanent User Fee was conducted and by this amendment the Borough is adopting a permanent User Fee based upon four (4) classifications of properties within the Borough: Single-Family Residential, Multi-Family Residential, Non-Residential, and Vacant. The amount of the User Fee depends on the classification of the parcel as well as the size of the parcel. A copy of the permanent User Fee is included with this notice. The amendment further amends the definitions of the Stormwater Management System User Fee Ordinance to be consistent with the four (4) classifications of properties and other sections of the ordinance relating to parcel classification. The amended ordinance will become effective January 1, 2018.
