Saving on Storm Water: An Unexpected Guide to Balancing Your Budget

When cutting costs, few municipalities start with an overhaul of their storm water management program. But, as it turns out, they should.  Storm water management eats up a large percentage of property tax revenue (e.g., 20% of property taxes in Downers Grove, Illinois).  By establishing a storm water utility, or just modifying existing landscaping ordinances, local governments can significantly reduce costs while improving their performance.  On Friday, May 4, 2012, at the Downstate City/County Management Association’s spring conference in Utica, Illinois, Ancel Glink environmental attorney Brent Denzin will outline strategies and practical steps that local governments can take to put these strategies into action.  A copy of the conference brochure is here.
