Will tax-exempt properties pay?

Yes. Unlike property taxes, there will be a stormwater fee for all properties with impervious area, including municipal, state, federal, and tax-exempt properties.  This is similar to other utilities in Lexington, like electricity, water, and sewer fees. 

The Town will pay their share of the stormwater fee out of the General Fund.  Public roadways will be exempt from the fee.  

Parcels with less than 400 square feet of impervious area will not receive a bill.
