Waupun News: Stormwater Utility audited

The Committee of the Whole for the Waupun Common Council heard the results of a recent audit completed on our Stormwater Utility.
The user fee is based on a property’s impervious area or storm water impact measured in Equivalent Runoff Units (ERUs).
Revenues generated from the user fee are placed in a dedicated fund to implement a stormwater program that directly supports maintenance and upgrades of existing storm drain systems, street sweeping and leaf collection, maintenance of storm water basins, development of flood and pollution control measures, and support water quality programs that service users.
The results of the re-measurement mean that some nonresidential property owners will see an increase in their ERUs while others will see a decrease.
The average residential property owner will see no change to their ERUs.
Additionally, the city evaluated Stormwater Utility billing rates as part of this audit and recommended that the current rate of $8 per ERUs will be reduced to $7 per ERU.
Around town, the Christian Home Spring Benefit Concert at 2 p.m. on Sunday, at First Reformed Church, 422 W. Franklin St. A free-will offering will support accessories for the new chapel.
I hope to see you there!
See you around town!
Mayor Julie Nickel
