Currently the City of Harrisburg collects annual assessments for Streets and Storm Water. The collection from these assessments are used towards maintenance and improvements to the streets and storm water. Legislation went into effect July 1, 2012 that lifted the cap of 40 cents per lineal front street footage to allow municipality's the ability to set their own rate. Due to a back log of street maintenance, major projects and in order to keep up with inflation the city council increased the street assessment rate. The current street assessment rate is 1.85 cents per lineal front street footage.
