LETTER: Adams County, home of the rain tax

-A A +A


Stormwater utility “tax” or “fee”? The Adams County commissioners claim it is a fee, but I say it is a tax.

Either way, the commissioners are charging for the rain that falls on roofs and driveways in unincorporated Adams County. This is the same rain that homeowners cannot collect because, by law, it belongs to someone else.

Stormwater drainage has always been paid for by our property taxes. This rain tax is just an Adams County “money grab,” nothing more. Otherwise they would let citizens vote on it. Let us vote.
