The Borough of Dormont Stormwater Authority was formed on August 3, 2015, by Ordinance No. 1609. The Authority submitted its Articles of Incorporation to the Pennsylvania Secretary of State on October 5, 2015, but due to delays at the state level, the Authority was unable to receive official approval of its Articles of Incorporation until February 4, 2016.
On March 23, 2016, the Authority held its first public meeting and organized its Board. On April 27, 2016, the Authority passed a resolution authorizing the collection of a Stormwater fee prorated for the second half of the calendar year 2016.
The first bills were sent to Dormont residents and property owners at the beginning of June 2016 and the first fees were due by the end of July 2016. 2017 Billing will be mailed the last week of December with a due date of January 31, 2017. Residents will have the option to pay a one-time yearly fee or break it into quarterly payments throughout the year.
Athens Alley Storm Water Project
Because of severe flooding on Athens Alley, Borough Council selected a consultant, Hazen & Sawyer, to study the area and determine possible solutions to the flooding and the costs involved in implementing these solutions. After doing significant scientific evaluations of the area, they will develop a preliminary plan, present it for the public to comment and then provide a final report to the Borough Council on June 3, 2013. Council will then decide whether to pursue any of the options and if so, how to fund them.
There will be a second workshop on this project for residents living in the immediate vicinity of Athens Alley and the surrounding streets on April 24, 2013 at 6:30 PM at the Council Chambers.
