The City of Palm Bay Utilities Department operates as an Enterprise Fund directly under the City government with management and administration provided through City staff. The Department currently serves over 28,000 water and 13,000 sewer customers and opened its new South Regional Water Treatment Facility in 2006. This facility is also home to the new Richard Jacobs Utility Administration Building. In addition, plans are currently underway to build a new South Regional Water Reclamation Facility.
The department’s goal to operate a financially sound utility system continues to be addressed in its annual operating and community investment budget. The department plans infrastructure for growth while reinvesting resources in the existing system. The Utilities Department budget is adopted by City Council each year as part of the overall City of Palm Bay budget process. This process allows the public to remain informed about upcoming improvement projects that may affect their day to day lives. In addition, this information creates open communication with our residents which facilitates accountability between both the City and its citizens.
The City’s fiscal year begins on October 1 and ends on September 30. Here you will find links to the Utilities Budget; Rates & Fees portion of the Utilities Budget; and Budgeted Community Investment Projects for Utilities.
