City of Arlington holds public hearing on proposed storm-water rate increase Nov. 1

ARLINGTON — Arlington residents will have an opportunity to comment on a proposed increase to storm-water rates on Nov. 1.

The Arlington City Council chambers, located at 110 E. Third St., will host a public hearing during their 7 p.m. meeting on the proposed increase, which could double Arlington’s storm-water utility rates in 2011.

The increase would fund improvements necessitated by state and federal clean-water mandates. An alternative proposal could implement the rate increase more gradually.

The hearing is expected to continue during the Council's Nov. 15 meeting, to allow for more public comment.
