SL Council reviews proposed storm water utility ordinance

Storm water is a topic at most council meetings. How to deal with it, where to go with it, or repairs to the system.
 
The quarterly meeting of the Silver Lake City Council on Monday, April 11, was no different.
 
The council reviewed a proposed ordinance that would establish a storm water utility. 
 
The money collected from the utility would create a storm water fund that would be used for repairs and improvements on the city’s storm water system.
 
Currently, the storm water system maintenance is paid for out of the general fund through the tax levy. However, some of the largest users to the system, such as the school, churches and city facilities, are tax exempt, therefore not contributing to the general fund. 
 
By establishing the utility, all users would contribute.
