This measure sought to repeal the village Storm-Water ordinance which was approved in December of 2010. A petition was submitted and the required signatures were obtained to get this issue on to the ballot. The proposed ordinance would have set a rate for residential properties and would have based the utility fee for commercial businesses on their square footage. The money generated from the utility tax would have gone towards maintaining the water system.[2] As a result of the petition, the village had tabled the plan to establish the storm water plan and have not collected the fee which was supposed to have started in January. Though the village council has made up a list of projects which would be funded by the fee if it does get implemented.[3]
