PORT ANGELES — The public will get a chance to comment on the city’s latest stormwater utility proposal — in which governments at all levels, from city to federal, would pay the fee for their planned projects — at a Sept. 3 public hearing.
The City Council is scheduled to set the public hearing during its regular meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers at City Hall, 321 E. Fifth St. in Port Angeles.
The Council also will discuss sending a letter to the state Department of Transportation that recommends additional mitigation for the eight-week closure of the Hood Canal Bridge in May and June of 2006.
The latest draft of the stormwater utility ordinance includes a $3 per-unit charge with a $3 minimum and $30 maximum charge.
Discounts of 25 percent and 50 percent also would be available to property owners who already have made stormwater control improvements.
