Much work has been done to correct drainage problems throughout our beautiful city of Beech Grove, but we still have a long way to go.
When we began assessing storm water fees back in 2014, we began to collect revenue to address these drainage issues.
On your next sewer bill you will see the final increase in the step process. Beginning in March, residential rate payers will pay $3.75 per month, which is a .75 cent increase from last year, and commercial rate payers will see an increase of .75 cents for each ERU. The City Council is in the process of capping this fee at $3.75 per ERU.
We will soon begin more work at the intersection of the Churchman bypass and Churchman Avenue, Killian Court, Mann Drive and on 21st Street. These repairs will help remove standing water in these areas.
