Isn't this just another tax?
No. This utility fee is considered a service for stormwater improvements and is allowed in accordance with Section 403.0893 of the Florida Statutes.

Although a utility fee is considered an additional cost to residents, it is not a tax on the ad valorem value of a particular property. The stormwater utility fee is not equated to property values. All owners of improved residential property pay the same fee. Commercial property fees are based on the square footage of impervious area located on the site.
