Annexation and Annexation Fees
Petitions for Annexation
Annexation fees are charged on new property being brought into the DeKalb Sanitary District. The annexation fee does not apply to current users. Petitions for annexation are approved or denied by the Board of Trustees. If approved, annexation is accomplished by the passage of an annexation ordinance at a regular meeting of the Board of Trustees.
Requirements for Annexation
The owner of property that is contiguous with District property may petition the Board of Trustees for permission to annex to the District and receive its services. In some situations pre-annexation agreements to allow service to a property that lies close to but not contiguous with District boundaries are also possible.
The fee for annexation is $3,000 per acre.
