After tabling a proposal to impose a stormwater fee early last month, Winder city officials met Thursday to discuss ways in which the unpopular measure could be implemented.
The 90 minute meeting generated more questions than answers, but council members unanimously agreed the city had to determine some way of funding needed stormwater system maintenance and improvements.
The mid-morning public hearing, in which media outnumbered citizens, was the first scheduled meeting of the city’s stormwater committee.
The committee, chaired by councilman Ridley Parrish, has been tasked with reviewing the stormwater issue and presenting a recommended course of action to the full city council.
