This is in regard to the article in the Whidbey News-Times article on Saturday April 13 stating that residents of the Town of Coupeville are now responsible for maintaining the right of way adjacent to their properties, which includes stormwater ditches.
We are currently being charged $11 each month for stormwater runoff, which means we have to maintain that area and pay for the privilege. There are many residents unable to perform this maintenance, so what they are supposed to do?
Since we have to perform this right of way maintenance duty now, we should not be charged for the stormwater runoff.
