Stagecoach lot owners will need to pay more– a lot more– to get the water and sewer turned on or get a vault installed.
Morrison Creek Water tripled tap fees for lot owners in Stagecoach, Colorado.
Tap fees increased from about $8,000 to $30,000 while vault permits increased from about $4,000 to $13,000.
