Jefferson City may be adding a storm water utility fee to fund services to repair and maintain the failing infrastructure.

City Council held a storm water utility discussion Monday night to determine the urgency of better storm water services and how they may be funded.

Floods in August and September caused damage to at least 40 buildings and homes in Jefferson City, and there were flash floods on various streets.

Multiple residents told the council they have spent thousands of dollars on property repairs due to flooding.


The Columbia Mayor’s Task Force on Infrastructure held a meeting Wednesday night to discuss ideas of how to help control the city’s problems with storm water.
