Grand Island, FL asked in Municipal Law for Florida

Q: Can I get out of paying below ordinance?

I received a bill from City of Umatilla (which I am a resident), for a bill of $144 for a storm water service back dated to 2017. I don't have water or sewer from city. I have well and septic tank. then there will be a $4 month added to my trash pickup bill. I don't think I should have to pay this due to not having water/sewer amenities from city, and if so I shouldn't have to pay back bill due to their error in billing me. Do I have any chance of getting out of this or can i be annexed out of city (my house is at edge of city and across street is county). The ordinance is #2008-K-1-4-15-2008 (before the 1 is symbol with 2 s on top of each other but i don't have on keyboard).
