Stormwater utility fee may be reduced in Clarkston

CLARKSTON, WA - The Regional Stormwater Management Team is seeking a reduction in the the ERU rate from $5 a month to $4 a month.

Coordinator Cheryl Sonnen said they've been able to reduce expenses for next year by more than $100,000, so they'll be able to afford a reduction in utility revenues. She sought approval from the Asotin County Commissioners Monday morning for the rate reduction, along with a request to fill positions in the program.

"What we're proposing is to add another employee to this budget," said Sonnen.

A public hearing will take place on November 19th to get input from the citizens regarding the matter. The Asotin County Commissioners will make their decision, following the hearing.
