Orlando hosts community meeting about possible stormwater utility fee increase

ORLANDO — During an open house Wednesday night, the city of Orlando proposed an increase in the stormwater utility fee, which leaders say would go toward more projects like flood prevention.

City of Orlando residents or business owners may have received a letter in the mail stating their stormwater utility fee could rise.

If city council approves the increase, rates will climb over the next four years.

How much the stormwater utility fee will go up depends on the size of your property.

The higher fee will help the city tackle more projects, including flood prevention, pollution, water quality and stormwater improvements.
