Projects funded and managed by private individuals or developers. Projects submitted by private developers for streets, sidewalks*, storm sewer and sanitary sewer public improvement are assessed an engineering, inspection and technology fee. The fee is 5.34% of the project cost. Privately funded improvements do not have to be publically advertised. These fees are collected after the plans and construction bid have been approved. Additional fees can be incurred depending upon geographic location such as Trunkline Connection fees and Sewer Lift Station fees.
