I’m looking at non-conforming legal park, 26 pads, 13 are filled currently. Zoning is general commercial.
Additionally, there is a house, a small cottage, and a small strip mall on the preoperty. The houses are vacant.
Monthly water/sewer bill breakdown:
2" Water Base 0-15 Ccf $57.50
Wtr Consump 16-40 Ccf $42.75
Wtr Con sump 41 + Ccf $89.68
Multi Family Sewer Base $2,781,09.
Stormwater Base $218,50
Water/sewer/storm Tax $287.06
There are a few other minor charges but the total is $3,593.98 per month.
That sure looks like an outragous amount of money for 13 used pads so I’m pretty sure they are billing for every pad being hooked up (26 pads, +2 houses, + 3 commercial spaces = 31 units). I have not seen an itemized bill yet but am wondering if this is a city specific price gouging technique or perhaps there is something wrong here. It’s an old park, built in the 1960s. It’s definitely not based on gallons used as the bill is the same every month.
Any pointers on digging into this one further and hopefully finding some way to reduce costs?
