NEW Fiscal Year 2023 Budget

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 adopted operating budget totals $148.8 million for the City’s 11 operating funds. This represents an overall increase of 5.4 percent from the FY 2022 budget. The FY 2023 budget uses resources wisely and focuses on several Mayor and Council priorities, including implementation of the Comprehensive Plan, environmental sustainability and Climate Action Plan, Vision Zero, economic development, and financial sustainability and pandemic recovery. The adopted budget includes no increases in real or personal property tax rates, implementation of the City’s new water and sewer utility rates, a modest increase of $20 per year for the refuse and recycling rate, and a $6 per equivalent residential unit (ERU) increase in the stormwater management fee.

Water and Sewer Rates

The Mayor and Council commissioned a study of the City of Rockville’s utility rate structure in FY20. Staff selected a nationally renowned consulting firm to provide recommendations for creating a new rate structure that creates three customer classes based on the cost of water and sewer service. The rates and rate structure were adopted by the Mayor and Council on November 15, 2021, and took effect on January 1, 2022.
