The approval of a new city ordinance could mean increased fees for Iowa City residents.

The Iowa City City Council will likely set a public hearing for an ordinance increasing storm-water fees as proposed in the fiscal 2013 budget. The increase would be the second since the Public Works Department established the fee in June 2004.

The city collects roughly $784,000 annually in storm-water fees.

Single family residential units would see a 50-cent increase per month, and multifamily units would see a 25-cent increase.

The public hearing and first reading of the ordinance have tentatively been set for March 20.
