News and Events

Proposed to be effective July 1, 2024 each property owner in the city limits will have a stormwater drainage charge added to their monthly utility bill. Property owners who currently do not receive a monthly city utility bill may begin receiving one with only a drainage charge. 


The City Council of the City of Manor will hold a public hearing in the Council Chambers at Manor City Hall, 105 East Eggleston Street, Manor, Texas, on May 15, 2024, at 7:00 p.m. to receive public comments on the proposed Stormwater Drainage Utility Ordinance. The Stormwater Drainage Utility Ordinance will establish stormwater drainage as a public utility and stormwater drainage fees will be enacted to fund the Stormwater Drainage Utility.


There will also be two open houses for the public to discuss the fee and stormwater program with city staff. The first meeting will be Tuesday, June 4th from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. The second will be Saturday, June 15th from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Both open houses will be in the Council Chambers at Manor City Hall - 105 East Eggleston Street.

Billing Class: Monthly Rate:
Single Family Residential (SFR) $6.50
Non-Single Family Residential (NSFR) Total impervious cover/2,730 * $6.50


The base drainage fee of $6.50 was determined by taking a sample of the impervious cover of 350 single family properties within the city limits. Impervious cover includes the area of the home, accessory structures, driveway, and other paving. The average impervious cover for a single family property was 2,730 square feet. 2,730 square feet equals 1 Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU). The stormwater drainage fee analysis estimated over 9,200 ERUs within the city limits and to fund the program the minimum monthly rate of $6.50/per ERU was established. 


The stormwater drainage charge will allow the city to better maintain our drainage systems and reduce flooding. The program proposes funding a Stormwater Master Plan and mapping, street sweeper and other heavy machinery, four dedicated stormwater drainage employees, and annual capital project expenditures. Typical projects that could be funded by the drainage charge include: street projects to level or regrade streets, adding storm drains, regrading or modifying open drainage ditches, maintaining existing storm drains and detention ponds, and creek projects to minimize flooding.



The City of Manor is a diverse, sustainable community and regional leader with exceptional services, a high quality of life, and a safe environment for citizens and businesses to thrive.
