I know of a TN city that has been doing this for years.

The city of Maryville charges for storm water runoff.

My grandpa has been tore up about it ever since they started it. A few years ago when they hadn't had rain in a few months, he went up to the municipal building and told them to take his storm water charge off because it hadn't rained. Of course they told him it was averaged out for the year. He was and still is upset over that $8 charge a month, and rightfully so in my opinion.

I think he pays $8 a month something like that. My church, when we lived in Maryville, pays around $65 a month.

Charging a tax for weather...suprised Al Gore didnt think of it. We can add a tax to the city water and sewer charge? BRILLIANT!!

Imbecilles at their best!
