Roanoke-CityRoanoke City Council is getting down to specifics on a long-planned storm water fee on homes and business to take effect July 1st, 2014. The federal government is mandating new standards that would direct more rainfall runoff into the earth instead of having it pick up pollutants before running into storm drains and ultimately the Roanoke River.  First notices are expected to go out late this year, and the new fee is likely to be effective next July. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
