RE: Water User Fees

Dear Chuck:

Northwest Florida Water Management District will be seeking
legislation this year to authorize it to impose water user fees
based on amounts of groundwater withdrawn for various purposes.
A copy of the proposed bill with an explanation of the rationale
is attached.

You will note that these user fees would be imposed in lieu of ad
valorem taxes with the maximum revenue not to exceed the revenue
that would be generated by an ad valorem tax assessment of one
mill.

User fees to be set by the Governing Board cannot exceed the
following:

For use within the district:

a. public water systems ... 10 cents per 1,000 gallons

b. agricultural water users ... 10 cents per 200,000 gallons

c. commercial/industrial water users ...
10 cents per 25,000 gallons


For use outside the district:


d. for any use ... 50 cents per 1,000 gallons




:jI, jj ef


You will recall that Northwest Florida Legislators have always
opposed increasing the ad valorem tax cap which currently is
imposed by the constitution for tha$a-rea to 0.05 mills.


irs,


Blain
