City okays stormwater study

Written by  Thursday, 17 April 2014 10:44

  At its meeting Tuesday, the Statesboro City Council approved the second phase of a study to look into establishing a stormwater department.  The results of the study by Ecological Planning Group of Savannah would be used to determine if a fee would be levied on all property in the city to fund the department to repair known drainage problems.  The amount to be charged would be based on impermeable surfaces on property.  The fee recommended by EPG is about $4.25 monthly that would be imposed on all property owners inside the city limits.


  City officials stressed funding the study does not obligate the city to add a stormwater department.  A decision is expected to be made by the City Council in December whether or not to approve the fee to fund the department at an estimated $1 million a year.
