SHERMAN, Texas -- That much talked-about storm water fee for customers of Sherman's water utility is going to happen.

The City Council okayed the fee at Monday evening's meeting.

The storm water fee will be added to each customer's monthly utility bill; the amount is determined by the amount of cover on your property from rain.

Businesses with large parking lots, for example, will pay more than similarly sized properties that don't have as much "impervious cover."

That new fee could be implemented as soon as November, when water and sewer rates will also be increasing by 3 percent.
