Rowland Heights Council to Talk Water Fee Tonight

The county is proposing a storm water clean up fee property owners would pay that would generate $8.2 billion for storm water clean up in the next 30 years.

The Rowland Heights Community Coordinating Council tonight will feature a guest speaker who will discuss a proposed new fee for residents of Los Angeles County.

Mike Lewis, president of Lewis & Company, Inc., a Southern California government relations firm and senior vice president of the Construction Industry Air Quality Coalition and the Construction Industry Coalition on Water Quality, will talk to residents about proposed storm water clean up fee.

The fee would be collected on property tax bills for all parcels in the county and is expected to generate $8.2 billion in revenue for storm water clean up in the next 30 years. How much a property owner pays would be based upon lot size and how much each parcel is impervious to the absorption of water.

Besides is work on water quality issues, Lewis served as a deputy on Supervisor Pete Schabarum's staff from 1973 to 1989 and was his chief deputy responsible for all policy and organizational matters throughout the 1980s.

The meeting will be held November 12, 2013 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the community building at Pathfinder Park, 18150 E. Pathfinder Road,Rowland Heights. Lewis' talk will begin around 8 p.m. All interested parties are welcome to attend. There is no admittance fee.

How do they plan on going about cleaning the system? Is this just another tax that we are going to have to pay that isn't going to give us that much benefit? ________________________________________ Find a Career College near you, www.americolleges.com
