In the spring of 2008, the Town Board passed an ordinance changing the Town Municipal Code such the Town pays for the full cost to replace deteriorating curb and gutter and sidewalk if the concrete is replaced by the Town. Residents may replace the curb and gutter and sidewalk at their cost, but they must obtain a Curb, Gutter, and Sidewalk Permit from the Town prior to replacement. Concrete Repair Guide Page
The fee is to pay for the operation, maintenance, administration and routine functions of the existing Town stormwater drainage facilities and for the design, right-of-way acquisition and construction or reconstruction of such existing and future stormwater drainage facilities. Sometimes a development owns and maintains some of the localized stormwater related infrastructure. In any case, the Town of Windsor has oversight of all facilities within the Town limits. In other words, whether a facility is privately owned or not, the Town is here to see that it operates properly, so as to not adversely affect downstream properties. If it doesn’t the Town may have to step in with enforcement action. The fact that some developments have privately owned facilities helps keep the monthly drainage fee lower than it otherwise would be.
