Stormwater Advisory Committee (SAC)

Date: April 18, 2018
Time: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Ferguson Township Stormwater Advisory Committee (SAC) has scheduled its 7th meeting for Wednesday, April 18. The meeting is open to the public and officially begins at noon.  

Agenda and Materials

The meeting is focused on setting priorities for the Ferguson Township Stormwater Program.

Working with a consultant, Elizabeth Treadway of Amec Foster Wheeler -- in partnership with Gannett Fleming -- Township staff have undertaken a study to evaluate the feasibility of establishing a user fee in the Township to pay for stormwater management.

The questions being considered are:

  • the problems, needs and opportunities of the current stormwater program
  • why change the current funding method?
  • what are the priorities in the next 5 years and the long-range goals?
  • what is the best organizational structure to deliver services to the community?
  • what program elements require additional funding?
  • what is the best way to pay for stormwater management?

Ferguson Township staff and Treadway will host a second public meeting on the stormwater user fee feasibility study, also on April 18. Open to anyone in the community, this will be an opportunity to learn what this project is and the options being considered to pay for stormwater management. 

The public meeting is scheduled for 4:30 - 6:30 pm Wednesday, April 18 in the Main Meeting Room of the Ferguson Township Municipal Building, 3147 Research Drive.
