Since June 2017, the HBPW has been working towards finding an equitable solution to fund the management of the City’s stormwater system. If Proposition S is approved by the citizens of Hannibal on the April 2, 2019 ballot, the stormwater utility fee would allow the HBPW the ability to address failing infrastructure, perform condition assessments throughout the system, have regular operations and maintenance schedules, define right of ways, and plan and implement capital projects. On April 2nd, citizens of the City of Hannibal will vote whether or not the HBPW will move forward with the implementation of a stormwater fee structure for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, maintaining, and improving the City’s stormwater system.
PROPOSITION S: AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF HANNIBAL CALLING A MUNICIPAL ELECTION TO BE HELD TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 2019 TO ALLOW HANNIBAL VOTERS TO CONSIDER THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A FEE SCHEDULE FOR THE PURPOSE OF FUNDING A UTILITY TO ACQUIRE, CONSTRUCT, MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE THE CITY'S STORMWATER CONVEYANCE SYSTEM.

Shall the City of Hannibal, Missouri, implement and maintain a separate fee schedule for the purpose of funding a utility tasked with acquiring, constructing, maintaining, and improving the City's stormwater conveyance system?
