IMPACT FEE DISTRIBUTION

Posted by:

Governor Corbett announced the county and municipal-level impact fee totals on October 15, the deadline is December 1 for sending revenue to local governments.

The money, more than $204 million total, was collected from a $50,000 fee on every horizontal Marcellus Shale well. (Smaller, vertical wells were assessed $10,000). Sixty percent remains at the county and municipal level.

Bradford, Clearfield, Greene, Lycoming, Susquehanna, Tioga and Washington Counties will take in the maximum amount of $500,000.

On the other end of the spectrum, fifteen boroughs will receive less than $10. The lowest total: $1.45 for Trafford, Allegheny County.
