Also, environmental programs administrator Scott Rae presented a brief overview of the recently adopted stormwater regulations.
These regulations, which are mandated by the state, were adopted by the Gloucester supervisors last June.
Gloucester's environmental programs administrator Scott Rae told the board of supervisors during its April 1 meeting that one thing they must decide is whether to set the fees lower to benefit business development, effectively offsetting county services through the use of general fund money; or to set fees at a higher rate to meet the services provided and reduce reliance on the tax-sourced general fund.
Gloucester's environmental programs administrator Scott Rae updated the board of supervisors during its meeting in the colonial courthouse on a stormwater management program, mandated by the state's Department of Environmental Quality.
Gloucester supervisors are exploring managing the new requirements locally versus having the state DEQ administer the program. Therefore, the county must submit its final plan to DEQ by mid-June. According to Rae, the purpose of the stormwater management plan is to protect local water resources by minimizing off-site transport of sediment and other pollutants during and after construction. County staff is currently proposing a set of fees for developing property in Gloucester, with a stormwater review base fee of $750, plus a per-acre cost and a land disturbance base fee of $200, plus per-acre cost. However, the board of supervisors will essentially have the final say in setting the fees for permitting and stormwater review. Rae told supervisors that one thing they must decide is whether to set the fees lower to benefit business development, effectively offsetting county services through the use of general fund money, or they may set fees at a higher rate to meet the services provided and reduce reliance on the tax-sourced general fund.
