Back to the Drawing Board

IMG_7776Local governments are struggling to find resources to comply with stormwater management regulations – a theme we will continue to hear about – particularly over the next 15 years in Chesapeake Bay localities. There are many ways to fund a stormwater program based on levying taxes or fees.

The Stafford County Board of Supervisors is facing an estimated $42 million cost of compliance over the next 15 years, but currently they do not have designated funds to meet the mandates. On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors voted to deny the creation of a stormwater service district. Like so many other localities, Stafford County is going ‘back to the drawing board’ identifying alternative, creative ways to find monies for their stormwater programs.
