How did stormwater utility billing service come into existence?
The City of Bristol has always provided stormwater utility services to
residents and businesses located within the City limits. Prior to July 1, 2014,
this service was primarily funded through property tax revenue. In order to
keep the 2014 property tax rate from increasing, the expenses associated
with maintaining the stormwater system throughout the City will now be
funded through a fee-based structure assessed on your monthly utility bill.
