Permit fees for rain barrels start at $31

PARMA Residents wanting to install a rain barrel in their yards will have to pay a steeper fee than what was originally believed.

The fee is $31 for one barrel, $32 for two, $33 for three and so on.

Last week, the Sun Post reported that it would cost just $1 to install a rain barrel.

That was based on a reading of a rain-barrel ordinance that City Council approved May 7. The ordinance established regulations for rain barrels.

The ordinance — while referencing another pre-existing code section — seems to state that the city fee for “storm water storage containers” is $1.

However, looks are deceiving.

What the ordinance did not say is that — under the other pre-existing code section — there is a base fee of $30 for storm water storage containers and other plumbing items.

So to calculate rain-barrel fees, residents should start with $30, then add $1 for each barrel they want to install.

Paul Deichmann, city engineer, believes the rain-barrel fee was established after 2008. It has remained unchanged since then.

And this is the kind of surprises people get when they don't attend the meetings!  This can be stopped, but everyone is too lazy to do anything!
