The city of La Porte could do some back pedaling on its new storm water fee.

It's response to many businesses complaining about high cost.

Monthly bills of more than two hundred dollars were among those cited.

At the city council Last night....there was a proposal for a flat rate of $5.47 a month for

businesses just for now.

The higher rate could be implemented gradually over time and possibly with some discounts, said

Waste water department superintendent Jerry Jackson.......

No action was taken last night.

There will be a public hearing at the next city council meeting on the 15th followed

by a possible vote.
