The Clinton City Council will talk about adding a rain tax at Tuesday night's meeting.

The tax would charge property owners for the amount of runoff generated by their properties.

It could cost some businesses thousands more in taxes every year.

The city would use the money to build a storm water pipe system.

It's designed to separate storm water from sewer pipes, something that's required by an EPA mandate.

Right now, 71 other Iowa cities and towns have a storm water tax in place.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.
