Stormwater Fee Initiative Update
Storm drain infrastructure needs were identified as a top priority by survey respondents last fall. As a result, the Council initiated proceedings and adopted ballot procedures for a stormwater fee initiative to:
• Repair deteriorating pipes and infrastructure to prevent system failure and sinkholes;
• Protect clean East Bay drinking water; and
• Protect the Town against future flooding.
A Notice of Public Hearing has been mailed to all property owners affected by the proposed fees which will be about $120 (or $10 per month) for the average home in Moraga, with rates varying for other property types.
