Stormwater fund draws harsh criticism

Several upset citizens are questioning the fairness of a storm water utility fund established in Park Rapids earlier this year.

Park Rapids approved the storm water utility fund in May, joining many other cities around the state. The fund allows the city to collect fees and create a fund that will be used to build storm water sewers and maintain existing ones.


Several people attended Tuesday's Park Rapids City Council meeting to ask the city about the new fees.
