The GovRates team has extensive experience developing water and wastewater impact fees (sometimes referred to as “capacity charges”) and other charges to growth and development such as capital recovery fees. Impact fees developed by the GovRates team meet the conditions set forth in statutory and case law and are:
- Designed to meet the “rational nexus” requirement that the fees cannot be higher than the value of the benefits received.
- Designed using industry-accepted methodologies.
GovRates also offers expert witness services for any impact fee challenges.
