MEETINGS Storm Water Utility Fee Education
The Department of Public Works (DPW) will host two public meetings about the recent storm water user fee rate adjustment. DPW staff will also demonstrate a new online tool which shows viewers the newly adjusted storm water user fee for each parcel of land in Marion County.
August 17 from 5:30 to 7pm
Southeastern Community Services, 901 Shelby Street
September 10 from 5:30 to 7pm
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 6050 North Meridian Street
Each meeting will include a demonstration of the new Customer Service Interface available online. Marion County property owners will learn how to use this tool to view the specific storm water user fee for each parcel as well as the amount of impervious surface on each of their properties. As of July 2015, all storm water fees are calculated based on the City’s measurement of the impervious surface area on each parcel. Impervious surface area is any ground surface where rain and storm water cannot be easily absorbed into the earth, such as paved roads, driveways, patios, cement walkways and the area covered by houses and garages.
Details and questions about the storm water tax can be answered or found by phone, via email, or online. You may call 317-327-2015 and leave a message or question for call-back in the voicemail box. Via email, contact storm email@example.com.
Other storm water or local flooding problems should be referred to Citizens Energy Dispatch at 317-924-3311.
