Town Of Moraga

Stormwater Fee Informational Meetings

A Notice of Public Hearing was mailed to all property owners affected by the proposed fees to 1) address first the high priority projects identified in the Storm Drain Master Plan; 2) implement an adequate operations and maintenance program to routinely inspect the storm drain system and conduct minor repairs to extend the life of storm drain infrastructure, especially to stabilize conditions for moderate and low priority projects; and 3) comply with unfunded clean water mandates to address water pollution and protect East Bay drinking water. Click on Notice of Public Hearing to view the notice. An average home in Moraga would be assessed $120 annually (or $10 per month), with rates varying for other property types. The hearing is scheduled for March 14, providing an opportunity for property owners to attend and be heard. In addition, all property owners will have the opportunity to submit written protests of the proposed fees prior to and during the hearing. If a majority protest does not occur at the hearing, the Town Council will decide whether to move forward with the mail-in ballot phase for property owners to vote on the fee. Two informational meetings were held on February 12 and two on February 20. Please view the video recordings of the February 12 presentations.
