  6.  Setting Municipal Fees and Charges

All government provided services come at a cost, and Lewis Young works to determine fees and charges for its clients based on time involvement of staff.

  7.  Impact Fees and User Rates

A healthy utility requires stable and sufficient sources of revenues.  Impact fees are allowed for funding growth related improvements that serve new development in the community, while user rates are assessed to existing development in a community to maintain existing systems serving the current population. Lewis Young has extensive experience in both fields, and is constantly striving to make sure that its methodologies are sound and legally defensible.
