Bill allowing DuPage County to create stormwater utility fee passes State Senate
A bill approved Thursday by the Illinois Senate gives DuPage and Peoria counties authority to enact stormwater utilities fees.
A possible fee would fund stormwater infrastructure improvements to mitigate flooding that has hit the area during big storms in recent years, DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin said. Currently, these improvements are paid for by property taxes.
Cronin said the fee would be more equitable than the property tax, because it would be based on how much water a property displaces.
