Stormwater fees help fund improvements

The $5 monthly fee residents started paying in 2012 soon will pay for a robot camera to travel through Greenwood’s stormwater drain pipes, looking for holes and debris.

And this year, Whiteland should finish a $700,000 project to expand part of the stormwater system that residents paid for with their $7.50 monthly fee.

Beginning in 2001, residents and businesses across the county began paying the stormwater fees, which now range from $2.50 per month for a mobile home in Franklin to $300 plus $25 per acre for new construction in unincorporated areas.
