Storm Water Utility Charges Not Coming Until 2012
Don't look for storm water utility charges in your next water bill. Or the one after that. Or, maybe, the one after that. The newly approved utility won't start billing until the first quarter of 2012. Between now and then, says city public works director Dale Hexom, plenty of work on adding the storm water charges to current water and sewer charges. Once billing begins, each household will pay a little over fifty bucks per year. Businesses will pay more. In some cases, thousands more.
