Cape Coral City Utility Expansion Project - Prepayment Discount Extended to July 31, 2014
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013 at 9:49am.
Cape Coral’s City Council voted to start expansion of utility hook ups for sewer, water, and irrigation to Southwest Cape Coral’s section 6 and 7. City utility service will be extended to more than 6,100 properties in an area of Southwest Cape Coral.
Annualized payments for the payments will extend for six years on the Capital Facility Expansion Charge ($6,750 this year) and 20 years for the Line Extension Assessment ($10,011). The City reported that this is the lowest amount since expansion was resumed in 2002 for their utility expansion project. If you wish to prepay your assessments you will receive a 20% discount on the Capital Facility Expansion Charge, but that offer will expire on July 31, 2014 – an extension from October 31st of this year.
Residents of Cape Coral are required to perform the hook up – it is not something that can be waived.

The city reminds owners that the utility expansion provides the following benefits to residents: a safe drinking water source, access to fire hydrants with a reliable water flow (which may lower your homeowner’s insurance costs), elimination of failing septic systems, irrigation watering provided by a secondary source for water conservation, and enhanced property values. The project started in August of 2013 and is expected to be completed in 2015.
