Manager Donna Metzler said that this form of management utility is quite common and that she studied the plans of several other communities.

The Moab City Council on Tuesday unanimously endorsed a plan to create a stormwater management utility that will provide the city with a mechanism to fund and support the management of stormwater drainage systems within the city limits. Although the council has approved the plan it must still pass an ordinance to create the utility and establish a system of rates associated with it.

Councilmember Rob Sweeten said that stormwater drainage was a major issue both last and this year. He is working with the Grand County Council to gain cooperation and help with the matter since much of the stormwater that ends up in the city system comes off county lands.
