West Chester Borough Council will continue to pursue a storm water fee as it continues to search for new revenue sources.
“We’ve met with a consultant,” said borough director of public works Bob Wilpizeski. “We’re ready for a proposal on how to implement this fee, and that proposal should be ready by next month.”
Wilpizeski estimated that the fee would take nine to 12 months to be implemented.
So far discussions around the fee have focused on how it will be billed—whether there will be a flat rate for single-family homes, or if the rate will be based on impervious coverage for all homes.
