Utility fee could pay for stormwater work

-A A +A

Virginia has passed mandatory stormwater regulations that will go into effect next summer. Officials hope to fix and prevent problems with the city’s aging stormwater system, but that could require citizens to bear the burden.

By SHAINA STOCKTON, Staff
Galax officials are looking at options to fund the cost of a required stormwater program that will go into effect next summer.
Galax City Council members discussed options for the program with City Manager Keith Barker and Carolyn Howard of Draper Aden Associates at their Nov. 12 meeting.
At this time, the project lacks the funds needed to move forward, but since the program is mandatory, council is looking at the possibility of a stormwater utility fee that would be added to resident and business tax tickets each year.
