City staff is looking at tacking user fees for storm sewers on your utility bill as discussed at council tonight.
You may ask why? The answer was not clear tonight but there is a want to separate the item from sewage fees in order to understand better where the tax dollars are being spent.
Your possible storm sewer fee will be based on the size and zoning of your property.
There was talk that if the user fees were in place, the tax levy could go down but staff said that there is work needed on storm sewers which the user fee would fund.
How much would it mean to a property owner? Storm sewers make up about an eighth of tax dollars compared to sewage.
