The City of Piqua is going to raise the storm water fee because of grass clippings being blown into the street and going into the storm drains.
There is the possibility that the storm water fee will have to be raised because so many residents and commercial mowing companies are blowing the grass clippings into the storm sewer catch basins. The clippings clog up the storm sewer pipes and have to be cleaned to prevent flooding. The additional maintenance required on the storm sewer collection system may require additional funding to maintain the lines properly. This could be avoided if the clippings are blown back into the yard instead of the roadway where they are washed into the catch basins.
Work will commence the week of April 24, 2017 on the City of Piqua’s 2017 Sidewalk ADA Compliance Program. The city has entered into a contract with Grissom Construction of Covington, Ohio for this project.
The project consists of the installation of concrete curbing, sidewalk, truncated domes as well as catch basin replacements in the following locations:
Parking along the streets may be prohibited at times during construction. No Parking signs will be posted 48 hours in advance to notify motorists of such restrictions. Motorists are asked to proceed through all construction areas with caution. All work is weather permitting.
