Bangor Residents, Businesses Protest Stormwater Fee

BANGOR - Bangor residents and businesses who face thousands of dollars in extra city fees due to a new stormwater charge could take their fight onto the local ballot.

Several residents voiced their objection to the plan last night at a public meeting about the new fees, which charge for what is called non-absorbent surface space on private property.

City officials say the fees will help mitigate problems for storm run-off that is impacting water quality in local streams.

One resident says he will circulate petitions to get the issue on the next local ballot in hopes of overturning the fee.
