Hi there everyone, this is my first post so bear with me if I make any mistakes as far as forum rules go!
Recently, my immediate family acquired a mobile home / Rv park combination. My question is in regards to the utilities that are paid on the mobile home side, specifically water. Averaged over 3 months, the water consumption was 596000 gallons per month from 82 mobile home, totaling 7268 gallons per home per month usage. We submeter this usage and charge a flat fee for anything under 2000 gallons, as decided by the city. The city however has a tiered system that charges different rates based on consumption. Currently, usage over 50000 gallons is charged at a rate of $2.15 per 1000 gallons but we charge a flat rate of $1.29 per 1000 gallons for everything over 2000 gallons. Can this rate be amended to reflect the 50000+ gallon rate because that’s what tier the majority of water usage falls into, or would that be a welcome opportunity to bring litigation against the park?
