Water hookup fees
I know this can greatly vary from region to region and city to city, etc., but I still have to ask even though some might think this is a dumb question...
I am getting our budget together to finalize the construction loan and I got the quote from the Water provider today outside of Austin, TX, to do the hookups in our subdivision. Impact fee is $6,230.
I had just gotten off the phone with the electric folks whose impact fee was only $200. I assumed water was going to be more, I just didn't expect $6k more. I guess I just thought that since it's a planned subdivision that has water and underground utilities that it would just be a couple grand at most.
Thoughts? Does this $6k price shock anyone else?
