Powder Springs officials are almost halfway finished with stormwater projects that taxpayers began funding last year.

City Manager Brad Hulsey said the public works department expects inspections of affected areas to take between 18 and 24 months, which is longer than the original estimate. While conducting inspections, city officials have encountered difficulty moving brush, Hulsey said.

Inspections are a never-ending process, as each project must be reinspected, Hulsey said.

Taxpayers began funding $312,000 of the $459,371 effort in November with a stormwater fee listed on their property tax bills. Each household pays approximately $36 per year.

The tax funds one salary out of five people who work on stormwater projects, as well as inspections and repairs.

There is no set timeline for completing the remaining half of the projects, Hulsey said.

The public works department will give a presentation outlining the completed projects and the work that still needs to be done during the regular city council meeting Monday at 7 p.m.
