Storm Water Drainage Utility

The Village of Mount Pleasant Storm Water Drainage Utility District was formed in 1998 by the Village Board, which sought to create a Utility by dissolving the former Storm Water Drainage District. The Utilities Commission governs the activities of the Utility. The Commission employs the Director of Public Works as its primary source for technical assistance relating to projects and day-to-day activities pertaining to the Utility. The Director of Public Works is assisted by the Deputy Director of Public Works, an Engineering Technician and various consultant engineering firms.
