FRUIT HEIGHTS — Anticipated revenues for the coming year will match expenses in this Davis County city so no tax increase has been proposed, though there will be a slight increase in some utility fees.

Brandon Green, city manager, said the city’s budget is roughly $1.6 million, which covers employees, maintenance of roads and parks, and contracts with the Davis County Sheriff’s Office, Davis County Animal Control and Kaysville City Fire Department.

Water utility fees will rise five cents, from $.95 to $1 per 1,000 gallons of culinary water, according to Trina Stott, city treasurer.

Storm drain fees will rise from $11.75 to $12.25 per month.

It is due to an increase in population that an additional block of water must be purchased from Weber Basin Water District, said Green. It will augment the amount the city already purchases from the district and the supply from the city’s own well.

The additional storm drain fees will help pay for maintenance of the city’s detention basin and storm drain system.
