Council Members Fight Storm Water Run-Off Fees 5-25-2011

Written By Elisabeth Hogan
NASHVILLE, Tenn. Two Metro council members are working to help small businsses.
Emily Evans and Jason Holleman are working to restructure or remove a cap from storm water run-off fees that some businesses claim is hurting their bottom line. The fee covers the environmental concerns for disturbing nature by building.
There is currently a $400 cap for building above a certain size, which small business owners say is unfair, because it gives bigger businesses a break.
Channel 4 first told you about a little league park that was forced to close because it couldn't afford to pay the fee anymore.
