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 />Utilities. <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. <br />basic unit for single family properties. <br />square feet was the average for single family lots and was the basis used in <br />developing the proposed quarterly fees for various properties as follows: <br />It is proposed that the sub-category of storm sewer, lakes & ponds <br />For <br />Staff looked at the various lot sizes to determine a <br />It was determined that 16,000-17,000 <br />Single Family Homes and Duplexes <br />Parks, Cemeteries and Golf Courses $3.36/acre <br />Schools $15.90/acre <br />Churches, Institutional and Multiple <br />Family Dwellings $40.35/acre <br />Commercial and Industrial $67.25/acre <br />$5.00/lot
