That's the new rate for most Charlotte residents starting in July, a 23 cent increase.
Others will either see monthly increases of up to $1.99. Commercial property owners will pay up to $3.75 more an acre.

Here's why about 10 percent of residents will actually see their bills drop:
Even though the Charlotte City Council recently agreed to raise its stormwater fees by 5 percent starting July 1, Mecklenburg County went to a staggered system.
The Mecklenburg fee structure divides all residential accounts into four tiers based on the amount of hard surfaces like driveways, sidewalks or patios. The impervious surfaces can lead to flooding in heavy downpours.
The four-tier system, commissioners said, would make the rates more fair and raise fees for those with larger amount of hard surfaces and lowering them for those with less. Davidson also has approved the four-tier structure.
So people with smaller areas of hard surfaces, typically small properties, will see a drop because the county's share of their stormwater bill will more than offset the city hike.
