City Council has passed legislation which establishes a Storm water Utility within the City of Avon. A Storm water Utility is a program that provides for the maintenance and improvement of public systems of drainage throughout the community. The collected revenues will be placed in a dedicated fund which can only be used for expenses related to the maintenance and improvement of public drainage systems. Many municipalities in Ohio and across the nation have looked to a Storm water Utility as an alternative way to equitably pay for the costs of providing and maintaining a modern public drainage system. Over 100 communities in Ohio alone currently have an established Storm water Utility.
