Adrian residents get city fee returned

ADRIAN, MI (Toledo News Now) -

SomeAdrian residents and businesses can expect to see a check from the city soon,when storm water utility fees are returned.

Itwas an annual fee that averaged about $20 per household. So far, almost 3,000people have paid the utility fee this year, but they will soon be reimbursedafter litigation in Jackson, MI.

Jacksonhad a similar storm water utility fee ordinance.

"TheCourt of Appeals in Michigan that determined the fee was not valid, and if you'regoing to charge a city-wide fee like that, it needs to go as a vote to thepeople," said Adrian City Administrator Dane Nelson.

Nelsonsays since they modified their ordinance to be more like Jackson's last year,they won't be keeping the money.

"Weshould do the right thing and follow that court's decision and begin the refundprocess," he said.

Thecity is aiming to get the refund checks out within the next six weeks. Streetfunds will be used in the meantime for storm water projects.
