This website informs you of a proposed settlement in a class action lawsuit, based on allegations that the Town unlawfully collected water and sewer Capacity Fees, Capital Reimbursement Fees, and System Development Fees, along with unlawfully collecting Transportation Fees, in order to retain funds for use on future projects and development. The settlement resolves the lawsuit. Town of Apex denies that it did anything wrong or unlawful and denies any liability to Plaintiffs and to the members of the Settlement Class.
You will need to file a Claim Form in order to qualify for benefits under the Settlement.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act, or don’t act. Read the Notice carefully.

The Town will not have waived any defense it may have to any such lawsuit.

Get no benefits. Give up any rights you might have to ever sue the Town about the legal claims in this case and resolved by the Settlement.
These rights and options — and the deadlines to exercise them — are explained in the Notice. The deadlines may be moved, canceled, or otherwise modified, so please check the settlement website at www.ApexImpactFeeSettlement.com regularly for updates and further details.
The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. Benefits will be provided to eligible participants only if the Court approves the Settlement and after any appeals are resolved. Please be patient.
