FROM: CITY MANAGER
DATE: OCTOBER 3, 2006
SUBJECT: STORM DRAIN USER FEE
Also at the September 5, 2006 Council meeting, Councilman Gardiner suggested that he would be interested in bringing back a proposal for an alternative to the existing storm drain user fee.
At their September 19, 2006 meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Long indicated that he and Councilman Gardiner had discussed the idea of exploring alternatives to the current storm drain user fee and were interested in working together to develop a proposal for consideration by the City Council. Mayor Pro Tem Long asked that an item be placed on this City Council agenda that would authorize the City Attorney to research legal issues related to election law and the legality of fees and parcel taxes in response to questions that he and Councilman Gardiner may have in developing a proposal to bring back to the entire City Council.
Councilman Clark asked that the agenda item be broad enough that the City Council could discuss whether or not there was sentiment among Councilmembers to explore storm drain user fee alternatives.
