The Colorado Springs City Council voted 5-4 Tuesday to abolish the much-maligned Stormwater Enterprise at the end of this month.

The council had voted 5-4 to phase the enterprise out over two years after the Nov. 3 passage of ballot issue 300, but Councilman Bernie Herpin changed his mind.

The city-owned agency is getting ready to mail the final batch of bills for the last quarter of 2009, and city officials are expecting property owners to pay whatever they owe.

“For those who have not paid, the city will pursue collections, whether that’s through liens on property or through collections agencies,” Mayor Lionel Rivera said. “The $1.7 million that’s still owed the city, we’re not just going to wave our hands and say it’s going to go away.”
