Colorado Springs City Council approves plan to create stormwater task force

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado Springs City Council voted in favor of a plan to create a regional task force to deal with stormwater issues in the Pikes Peak Region.

The inter-governmental agreement, or IGA, would create the Pikes Peak Regional Drainage Authority.

Members of the proposed authority would include Green Mountain Falls, Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Fountain and El Paso County.

In November, voters will have the chance to decide whether they want to fund the stormwater task force. If it is approved, each household will pay about $7.70 a month.

The money will be split up among each member of the task force and the board will decide on how the money will be spent for flood projects in each area.
