Guess I Know Now

Guess I know now why the Vincennes City Council voted to add a Storm Water User Fee. The rain over the weekend came long and hard and the city's storm sewers were working overtime - some locations better than others. I live on a hill and the water in my cellar had nothing to do with storm sewer design, construction, or maintenance; but in the low lying areas a pretty good case could be made for more and better handling of the storm runoff. And we all know that "more and better" always costs "more". The "better"? The jury is still out on that.
