Staunton Stormwater Charges Change

The city of Staunton is thinking of changing the way it charges residents and businesses for stormwater improvements, and they're trying to inform the public.

The city held two public meetings Wednesday to tell residents how the new fee would be applied.

The fees are based on impervious surfaces such as pavement, sidewalks, and roofs, which would put a larger burden on large stores and less of one on homeowners.

Staunton residents, such as Mark Hollbert, say they think the new fee is past due.

He says, "I think the storm water utility fee that Staunton's talking about has some promise, and this aging infrastructure is something so easy to ignore. It's out of sight, out of mind. I think we all as citizens of Staunton need to do something about this."
