What's changing?

The stormwater assessment will replace the stormwater utility fee (which was charged monthly on your water utility bill) and will be collected on the annual tax bill mailed by the Brevard County Tax Collector in November. You will no longer see this monthly fee on your water utility bill but property owners will see the assessment on their annual tax bill from the Brevard County Tax Collector.
