Stormwater rates don’t match the explanation
Something doesn’t “add up” regarding the stormwater rate quoted in Betsy Tyler’s Feb. 6 article.
The existing rate is given as $0.86 per 1,000 square feet.
My 85x140 lot is 11,900 square feet (about a quarter acre).
Maybe as much as half of that is impervious — 5,950 square feet.
I should be charged 5,950/1,000 x 0.86 = $5.12.
(Even if ALL of my property were impervious, that works out to be $10.23.)
How is the actual bill of $32.28 arrived at?
