Storm Water Utility Referendum

Due to the devastating impact of the August 20, 2018 storm, the City of Middleton's Common Council provisionally approved a resolution to place the following question on the April 2, 2019 ballot:

RESOLVED, that due to the devastating impact of the August 20, 2018 storm, the City of Middleton Storm Water Utility shall be permitted to charge customers of the Storm Water Utility an annual charge of up to $45 per equivalent runoff unit from each property, for the years 2019 through 2024 only, to fund the repairs to the Pheasant Branch Creek Corridor, Tiedeman Pond, Stricker Pond and other storm water management features that were damaged by the August 2018 flood, without reducing the levy limit for the charges of the Storm Water Utility.

In order to provide our citizens with as much information as possible, the City is providing this additional information on what this referendum means and what we hope as a municipality to achieve by passing this.
