A 'Storm Water Management Program' is now required.

*From the article:

"... The plan is posted on the city’s website and is set up to take comments from the public..."

*From the McMinnville City Council Agenda:

*From the, "CITY OF MCMINNVILLE TMDL IMPLEMENTATION PLAN July 27, 2022 DRAFT [Page 13]"

"McMinnville does not have a stormwater or environmental division. There is no stormwater fee that stands as dedicated funding. For the most part, stormwater activities such as street sweeping, catch basin cleaning, storm line repair, detention basin maintenance and the like is performed by the Wastewater Conveyance group and Street staff and funded by the Streets Fund (gas tax)."

McMinnvilleans...get ready for additional increases to your utility bills.
