<br />PUBLIC HEARING CONDUCTED ON STORM DRAINAGE UTILITY: ORDINANCE TO BE DRAFTED.
<br />Affidavits of notice were presented, approved and ordered placed on file.
<br />Engineer Fran Hoffman made the presentation advising that 18,000 notices were sent
<br />to property owners in Edina regarding the public hearing on the storm drainage
<br />utility. Staff has expended considerable time during 1987/88 reviewing the City's
<br />storm sewer system, including pipes, ponds, stormwater detention areas and creeks.
<br />Over the years the City has constructed new facilities through the development
<br />process and special assessment to project areas. The maintenance needs of the
<br />system have increased over the years and the two major rainstorms of 1977 and 1987
<br />suggest a policy review to create an additional movement of floodwaters from
<br />private to public areas. Currently, there are four major categories in the Public
<br />Works budget: 1) Engineering, 2) Streets (sub-categories: ramps & parking lots,
<br />street maintenance and storm sewer, lakes & ponds), 3) Equipment Operation, and 4)
<br />under Streets be transferred under Utilities, similar to the water system and
<br />sanitary sewer system which is allowable under State Statute 444.075. The goals
<br />of establishing a storm drainage utility would be: 1) to maintain existing storm
<br />water facilities so they will operate properly for a longer period of time, 2)
<br />provide and improve wetlands to clean storm water and retard flows, and 3) to
<br />replace existing storm facilities which could become unusable over the years due
<br />to natural deterioration. Obviously, to achieve these goals will cost more than
<br />the City is currently expending today on routine maintenance of the system.
<br />Construction of any new storm sewer systems will continue to be paid for by the
<br />developer (i.e. Hedberg and Carl Hanson properties). The Storm Drainage Utility
<br />would be a service similar to the water and sanitary sewer utilities. Fees would
<br />be based on the amount of water discharged into the storm sewer system.
<br />example, a parking lot creates more runoff than a grass area of the same size, so
<br />commercial, industrial and multiple dwelling properties would accrue higher rates
<br />than residential properties.
