In 2003, the City of St. Peters residents approved a $28 annual assessment – the fee is paid with annual real estate taxes.
The program is open to residential property owners within the City of St. Peters limits – this includes single-family homes, duplexes, villas, or condominiums. Properties that are not located within the City limits are not eligible.
The first step is to submit an application along with a receipt for cleaning your lateral, your last year’s paid Real Estate tax receipt, and a $500 application fee. The City contractor will perform a video inspection of the sewer lateral. The video inspection is needed to verify the nature and location of the defect. If a defect is not eligible for the program, the balance of the application fee will be refunded to the homeowner.
The Sewer Lateral Repair Program will provide a maximum of $10,000 per household. Any charges in excess of $10,000 would be the homeowner’s responsibility.
The funds for the Sewer Lateral Repair Program are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis until all the funds have been used for that calendar year. If the funds have been used, applications may still be submitted and reviewed. Eligible projects will be placed on a waiting list for the next year. If funds remain at the end of a year, they will be carried over and applied to the next year.
If a repair is deemed eligible, the City will request repair quotes from contractors. The quotes will be returned to the City for review; the City will approve the lowest qualified bid. The City will then execute an agreement with the selected contractor. The City will issue a permit and inspect the repair work. Once the work is completed, the City will issue payment to the contractor.
