Port Angeles: Residents to get another chance to speak out on proposed stormwater fee

PORT ANGELES — Residents will have more time to comment on a proposed stormwater utility ordinance.

The City Council on Tuesday continued a public hearing on the ordinance to Sept. 17 after hearing from some proponents and opponents.

But more people may want to comment on the proposed ordinance and associated stormwater utility fee.

Mandated by the state, the stormwater utility would provide funding for controlling stormwater runoff.

If the ordinance is approved, the fee would be collected beginning Jan. 1.

The maximum monthly charge would be $3 for single-family homes and duplexes, billed to the property owner.

The charge will be capped at $30 per month for developed non-residential properties, such as parking lots, businesses and apartment houses.
