The City of Goldsboro is talking about the potential implementation of a storm water utility, and that could mean new fees for residents, businesses and other entities.
A recommendation from the city’s Stormwater Stakeholder Committee would establish a $4.50 monthly fee for most residents. Commercial and non-profit properties could be charged based upon the size of the impervious surface on their parcels. Also some landlords or owners of multi-family residences could be billed for those properties rather than the residents. The recommendation was presented at the Monday evening Goldsboro City Council meeting, and the council decided to take up the issue again at its next meeting in two weeks.
