South Burlington Stormwater Measure, 2009
A South Burlington Stormwater Measure was on the September 15, 2009 secret ballot in Chittenden County for voters in the City of South Burlington. The measure proposed approximately $716, 477 in stormwater pollution projects.
On Monday, August 24, 2009 the city council voted in favor of approving the project which in turn qualified the city for a federal stimulus loan to fund the projects. The city charter, however, requires that voters must approve each of the projects. Proposed projects, which will be funded by federal loans, include: upgrades designed to slow the flush of rainwater and pollutants from roofs, driveways, roads, parking lots and lawns from residential developments.
All projects were approved.
