City of Cedar Rapids Public Meeting: Stormwater Utility Improvement Process


June 8, 2012, 9:25 a.m.

Public Meeting for Discussion of the Stormwater Utility Improvement Process

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – June 8, 2012 – The Cedar Rapids Public Works Department will have a feedback opportunity for residents, business and industry representatives and all other interested groups on the possible changes to the Stormwater Utility. This will be the first meeting in a series of meetings to discuss the Stormwater Utility. The City of Cedar Rapids has had a Stormwater Utility since 1979. The funds generated from this utility have gone toward the upkeep of storm sewer. With changing regulations, increase miles of storm sewer/intakes and increase number of publically owned detention basins the City felt it was time to look at the level of service provide by the Stormwater Utility. The City of Cedar Rapids has concluded a study of how other Cities in Iowa have set up their Stormwater Utilities. We have entered into a six month process to discuss the Stormwater Utility Program.

Meeting: Date: June 14, 2012
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Location: Public Works, 1201 6th Street SW

This public meeting will discuss the six month process the City of Cedar Rapids is starting as well as discuss the Stormwater Improvement Program – Service Analysis. At the end of this six month process the City of Cedar Rapids will decide whether there are reasons to change the Stormwater Utility Program and what those changes may be for Fiscal Year 2014 budget (July 2013).
