The Des Plaines city council this week formally approved the extension of gasoline taxes and storm sewer fees that were due to expire at the end of the year.

Aldermen extended both a 33-cent storm sewer fee and a 2-cent per gallon gas tax through 2014, which are expected to generate $1.6 million for capital improvements. The two add-on fees were established in 2009.
