St Louis County residents will not see an increased storm water fee after today's Missouri Supreme Court ruling.
Wrap: The court ruled a 2007 St. Louis Sewer District service fee unconstitutional.
MSD spokesman Lance LeCome says the upheld ruling means residents in the far West, South and North districts will continue to receive little to no sewer services like fixing a busted pipe.
|Description: "Customers are going to go without services and many of those customers are impacted quite negatively by this lack of storm water funding."|
The fee charged residents who own property with high water run off for the money MSD calculated the runoff damage cost, but the court called that process a tax.
The Court ruled MSD gets to keep the 90 million it already collected from 2008 to 2010.
