A year later, there's steady forward progress.
Local media coverage: Stormwater fee passes in N.A., by Amany Ali (New Albany Tribune).
The fee for residences was lowered from $3 to $2 at the insistence of Councilman Larry Kochert, saying residences should get a break. The council approved that amendment. (Mayor James) Garner said lowering that cost would cut $175,000 to $200,000 from the budget, which would take away money from drainage project costs.
The fee for commercial properties was raised from $15 to $18, which Garner said would bring in an extra $37,000 to $40,000.
The Gang of Three? Kochert keeps his distance, at least for one night in November.
