A stormwater fee was approved by the Mobile City Council in a 6-1 vote Tuesday morning.
It was earlier this month when the City Council heard a proposal from the Mayor Sandy Stimpson to begin collecting a stormwater fee from homeowners and businesses.
The mayor said then that all fees will be allocated to stormwater activities to improve the water quality of city waterways. He said that would include repairs to drainage systems.
The fees will be $10 a year for homes and a half cent per square foot for commercial space or commercial property, with a maximum of $3,000.
