Additional Connection Fee Legislation Signed

Governor Murphy signed into law S-1247, which authorizes certain local government utilities to impose additional connection fees, and requires certain new credits and reductions for these fees. Specifically, the law authorizes sewer authorities, municipal authorities, and counties or municipalities operating sewerage facilities or water facilities to impose new connection fees for an addition, alteration, or change in use to certain connected properties that materially increases the level of use or imposes a greater demand on the system, but does not involve a new physical connection to the system. The law also provides that the existing connection fee reductions for certain types of affordable housing be extended to all affordable housing, including affordable housing units in inclusionary projects. P.L.2018, c.74, which the League supported, took effect August 10, 2018.
