Ordinance 15-08 - Utility Connections For New Development


Contact and/or Presenter Information
Dan Schlandt, Deputy County Administrator, ext. 3732

Action Requested
Adopt Ordinance No. 15-08 to establish provisions for utility connections for new development.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Chapter 63-1598, Laws of Florida

Background Discussion
  • On January 20, 2015, a worksession was held with the Board to discuss changes to our Sewer Facility Investment Fees per an update to our rate study and to discuss changes to the process for extension of sewer line facilities.  This ordinance and a separate ordinance also to be considered at this meeting (Ordinance No. 15-22) implement those changes as proposed at that worksession.  As discussed at that worksession, the new fees are necessary to adequately fund the county's participation in extending sewer service to new areas and these ordinances will provide for a more consistent process for addressing service in areas currently not served by the utility system.  
  • Proposed changes are also consistent with Local Development Agreements (LDAs) that have been approved by the Board recently as these proposed changes have been under review and development.
  • Major provisions implemented by this ordinance include:
    • Process for determination and conditions of agreement for alternative connections
    • Oversizing of lines and other related infrastructure and potential participation by the Utility System
