How much money will this service fee raise for the storm water utility fund?

Currently the storm water charges raise approximately $330,000 annually; however, the City requires far more revenue for storm water than what is currently collected. The storm water program is intended to fund capital improvements, operations, maintenance, development review, administrative services, field inspection and regulatory compliance.
