The project completed the process to create a storm water utility and adopt ordinances to comply with current state storm water
regulations, specifically NR 151 and NR 216. This process was carried out except for final adoption. The City decided to hold off on the
final adoption at this time. The ordinances included Illicit Discharge Detection, Subdivision Ordinance, Erosion Control and Storm Water
Management, and Wellhead Protection Ordinance. There was a group of local business owners who decided to fund stonn water
management practices to the City to deter utility creation. The City agreed to this approach during the next three years. After which
business perfonnance at storm water management will be ava/uated.
The process to complete a storm water utility was completed and once Implemented will provide the City a dedicated and consistent
revenue stream to pay for storm water related expenditures, evaluate development proposals, and protect local water resources. In
addition, the utility allows the City to implement additional elements to their Storm Water Master Plan, promote public education and
lnvovlement, and to improve local bodies of water by implementing appropriate storm water Best Management Practices.
