Still baffled by the new stormwater fees?
County officials will host a series of informational meetings where residents can get answers to their questions.
County Executive Laura Neuman announced the meetings in a press release this week.
Neuman has been critical of the fees since taking office. In March, her veto to terminate legislation enacting stormwater fees was overridden in a 5-2 vote by the council. And earlier this month, she asked the federal government for aid in overcoming the financial burden of the stormwater plan as mandated by the state government.
In the press release, Neuman said:
"We may not be able to do anything about the tax, but we will make sure residents know how the County arrived at the assessment numbers and how their hard-earned dollars will be used.”
The meetings will be:
- 7-8 p.m. Sept. 16—Brooklyn Park Middle School in Brooklyn Park
- 6-8 p.m. Sept. 26—Heritage OFfice Complex in Annapolis
- 6-7 p.m. Oct. 2—Ft. Meade High School, in Ft. Meade
