Water and Sewer “Impact Fees” Again Face Legal Challenge

June 8th, 2018 | Posted in Construction Litigation, Litigation, Municipal Law, Regulatory Compliance, Uncategorized

A land developer in Pinehurst is suing Moore County, saying they were charged illegally for water and sewer fees. We handled a similar case a few years ago. A County or Water Authority can charge for fees, but they either have to provide the service or will provide the service in the future. In our case we were able to prove that there were zero plans to ever provide the service.
