Storm Water Fund Would Cost Northampton Property Owners

A new storm water enterprise fund in Northampton could cost homeowners more than a hundred dollars a year.  Commercial property owners would pay more.  A task force studying how to pay for pricy upgrades to the city’s crumbling drainage system recommended charging property owners in its final report.  The formation of any such storm water fund would first have to be approved by the Board of Public Works and the City Council.
