What is the stormwater surcharge fee on my bill?

It’s a monthly fee that is charged to persons connected to either municipal water or sanitary systems or both. The owner, occupant, or person who is responsible for the payment of water and/or sewer service shall be jointly and severally responsible for the payment of this surcharge fee. It pays for the City’s current stormwater system and annual maintenance costs. This helps to prevent and correct runoff problems in Kearney. The fee is $2.00 per month for residential properties and $6.00 per month for non-residential properties.
