Accounting due on IOW storm water plan

To the Editor:

A recent article in a Richmond paper discussed The Storm Water Utility Plan being implemented in Chesterfield County in response to the Chesapeake Bay Cleanup. A five-year plan beginning in 2017 at a cost of $35 million. Average expected cost for a single family residence was $24 per year and $308 per year for an average commercial property.

Given the wide cost variance between Chesterfield’s plan and Isle of Wight’s plan, I believe it is time for an accounting. What was/is the cost of our plan? How have funds been spent to date?

What grants have been applied for/received? What projects at what cost have been completed or are planned?

Perhaps the Board of Supervisors could have staff provide a clear accounting to the citizens who are funding this endeavor within the next 90 days.
