TAP FEES FOR APARTMENTS, TOWNHOUSES, AND OTHER MULTI-FAMILY AND RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION DEVELOPMENT
All developments shall provide one water meter per residential unit. Master meters for multiple units or buildings will not be allowed. In order to receive the reduced tap fee rate, the calculated, non- refundable fee for the entire project must be paid in full prior to the issuance of building permits.
This reduced fee option is only available for development projects in which the entire cost of construction of water and sewer utilities within the project are paid for and installed by the developer. Water utilities shall include: water pipes, valves, valve boxes, fire hydrants, tapping saddles, corporation stops, service lines, meter yokes, meter boxes and lids. Sewer utilities shall include: sewer pipes, manholes, manhole rings and lids, tracer ports, pumps, controls and other necessary appurtenances to transport sewage from the new development to an existing sewer main of adequate size to accept the increased flow. All materials used in the construction of water and sewer utilities must conform with the City of Tontitown Standard Specifications.
