Arundel considers $25-$35 annual runoff fee

Funds would be used to reduce stormwater runoff

November 09, 2011|By Nicole Fuller, The Baltimore Sun

The Anne Arundel County Council is considering legislation that would levy an annual fee on county residents to help reduce stormwater runoff.

Councilman Chris Trumbauer, an Annapolis Democrat, introduced the bill at Monday night's meeting. The bill would permit a $35 annual fee on the property tax bill for residential properties and $25 for condos and townhomes; non-residential properties would be assessed depending on square footage.

The fees would go into a dedicated fund for reducing stormwater runoff that would work to reduce the backlog of needed restoration and retrofit projects already identified and to get the county into compliance with state and federal regulations.
