In response to citizens' appeals to the Town to assist with the financial burden caused by stormwater runoff, the Town Council passed an ordinance (July 1999) creating this utility. The fee is used as an enterprise fund to provide the funding to pay for the services the Town would have to provide to manage the stormwater runoff.

Policy guidelines in the Town of Parker Storm Drainage and Environmental Criteria Manual (SDECM) have been established to determine stormwater facilities that are eligible for Stormwater Utility maintenance assistance. Copies of the SDECM are available upon request at Town Hall.
The property owner may send a letter to the Town and request a review of the calculation stating the basis for the dispute. The letter can be emailed, faxed, mailed or brought to the Parker Town Hall at: Town of Parker Attn: Stormwater Billing 20120 E. Mainstreet Parker, CO 80138 Ph: 303.841.0353 Fx: 303.840.9792 Email Once we have received this letter, we will make a site visit to verify which areas are impervious to verify the amount. If it is wrong, we will correct it and rebill the proper amount. If it is correct, we will provide the documentation to you to show how it was calculated.
At 60 days past due, we will send a second past due notice containing a warning that this is the last past due notice that will be sent, that a $25 surcharge has been added to the bill, and a lien will be placed on your property for the amount due including the $25 surcharge when the bill reaches 90 days past due. At 90 days past due, a lien will be filed on your property with Douglas County for the amount due plus $25. The fee will then be collected through the property tax system.
