At the June 2, 2008 Colfax Village Board meeting Ordinance #2008-3, "An Ordinance Regulating Storm Water Control" was passed to add a Storm Water Fee to the Water and Sewer bills. This fee was established in order to set up a fund for future drainage tile issues which might arrise. The Village spent approximately $20,000 this past year repairing old drainage tile through the Village from Cooper Street to Main Street.
The $3.00 fee which started on the July water bill will be added to all water/sewer bills each month. If in the future the Village Board sees that enough money is built up and no projects have to be done, the fee can be dropped for a period of time and then restarted if needed.
Anyone wishing to see a copy of this ordinance can come to the Village Clerk's office during regular business hours and read it.
