Storm water utility gets rolling

City officials have taken preliminary steps to create a utility that will fund storm water management projects in the future — and collect a monthly fee from residents and businesses.

The Seymour Board of Works agreed Thursday to pay Wessler Engineering of Indianapolis $80,500 to start the process of establishing the utility. The system could take nine months to a year to put into place, officials said.

Once approved by the city council, it would work similarly to the city’s sewer utility, charging residents and businesses a storm water fee on their current sewer bills.
