An ordinance regulating the Town of Windsor’s storm water maintenance facilities met with controversy on Monday, but still passed on first reading. “This ordinance is an effort to become proactive and partner with the homeowner’s associations (HOAs) to prevent problems,” said Mayor John Vazquez. The ordinance will make the town responsible for the proper conveyance of storm water through the town limits and will provide an enforcement tool for the town to use with other entities that may not maintain their detention ponds in the form of property liens. “The intent is not to use the liens for the first couple of years at all, as we educate people who are probably not even aware they have detention ponds to maintain,” said Director of Public Works Terry Walker.
