WEBINAR: The City and County of Honolulu's Proposed Storm Water Utility
Date: Thursday, June 25, 2020
Time: 12:00 noon
Cost : Free for HAEP members and students, $5 for non-members.
All those interested in participating should complete the RSVP form below by Tuesday, June 23, 2020.
In 2015, Hawaii’s state legislature passed legislation that allows counties to establish storm water utilities. The City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Facility Maintenance (DFM) is managing Honolulu’s study of options for a storm water utility and fee structure. DFM has completed initial cost of service assessments and a draft rate analysis, which will be shared at this meeting. A Stakeholder Advisory Group and input from a series of 18 community meetings is providing DFM with input on the types of services to be provided by the utility, options for a balanced and equitable fee structure, and desired types of credits.
Input and questions from members of HAEP is welcome and encouraged. The project website includes a short video, email sign-up, dates and locations for community meetings, and materials from all Stakeholder Advisory Group meetings: www.stormwaterutilityoahu.org
