Update 6-19-2018 

On Monday, Robert Chambers of Black & Veatch, a global utility consulting firm, presented the company's analysis of potential system development fees for the Town of Clayton to the Town Council.

The public was invited to comment on these potential changes to public water and sewer system development fees, however, no one spoke Monday night. 

Following the presentation of the analysis, public hearing and consideration of any comment(s) or amendments to the proposed analysis, the Town Council voted to set the following:

Special Meeting
4:30 p.m. Monday, June 25, 2018
Town Council Chambers
The Clayton Center, 111 East Second Street

At the meeting, the Council will consider adoption of the written analysis and the adoption of an ordinance setting the system development fees to be effective July 1, 2018, as required by Session Law 2017-138.

The North Carolina General Assembly recently passed House Bill 436 (HB 436) to help address fee inconsistencies among public utility providers, including calculation methodologies and implementation. The new law allows public water and sewer providers like the Town of Clayton to charge water & sewer System Development Fees (SDFs) to recover all or a portion of the capital investment made by the Town to provide sufficient capacity in its system to serve new users. 

The Town of Clayton, like all municipalities in the state, had to hire a company to analyze its water and sewer System Development Fees (SDFs) in order to ensure compliance with HB 436.

Per HB 436 guidelines, the Town of Clayton offered a 45-day public comment period on the analysis and its recommendations. No comments were received.
