Gov. Quinn signs bill allowing DuPage County to charge new stormwater fee
Gov. Pat Quinn has signed a bill allowing DuPage County to charge property owners a utility fee that would be based on the amount of stormwater displaced by property.
Switching over to a fee-based system – stormwater services are currently funded through property taxes – could help alleviate some of the flooding problems that have plagued the area as well as better fund the DuPage Stormwater Management department, Quinn said in a statement.
"Residents should be better protected from the flooding like we experienced this spring, and this other piece of legislation establishes a framework to improve their stormwater management," he said.
