System Development Fee Analysis & Public Comment

System Development Fee Analysis & Public Comment

In June 2017 the North Carolina General Assembly ratified House Bill 436 “An Act to Provide for Uniform Authority to Implement System Development Fees for Public Water and Sewer Systems in North Carolina and to Clarify the Applicable Statute of Limitations”, thus amending Chapter 162A of the General Statutes by adding “Article 8, System Development Fees.” As a requirement of the aforementioned amended statute, the City of Mebane retained the services of Alley, Williams, Carmen & King, Inc., a professional engineering consulting firm, to complete a system development fee analysis and prepare an accompanying written report.

The City of Mebane currently charges System Development Fees and prior to considering adoption of new System Development Fees, the amended statute stipulates the local governmental unit must post the written analysis on its webpage or otherwise make it available for public review and comment. This public review and comment period shall extend for a minimum of 45 days and afford a means for written comments to be submitted to the analysis preparer.

In accordance with this condition of House Bill 436, the City of Mebane is making the written analysis available for public review by clicking here or at City of Mebane City Hall, 106 E. Washington Street, Mebane, NC 27302 from April 10, 2021 through May 24, 2021.

Written comments may be submitted via certified mail or electronic mail as shown below.
