Beginning November 1st Carmel Utilities bills will have storm water fee included.
Effective November 2014, all property owners with City limits will receive a storm water fee on their Carmel Utilities bill. Homes, townhomes and condominiums will be billed at $4.95 each month. Apartments and non-residential properties will be assessed a monthly fee based upon the amount of hard surface (rooftops, parking lots, sidewalks, etc.) on the property.
The storm water fee is assessed through the Department of Storm Water Management which is separate from Carmel Utilities. The storm water fee is being placed on the Carmel Utility bill solely to reduce adminstrative costs. Additional information is available at www.carmelstormwater.com or you may contact the Department of Storm Water Management at 317-819-7301.
