Hyde Park discusses if businesses should be treated like residents

HYDE PARK – City Council members met Wednesday to discuss whether or not businesses should be treated as residents when it comes to paying utilities, and what residents can and cannot do on their own properties.Property owners and residents of Hyde Park pay $35 a month for sewer usage. One of the questions at hand was, does the city treat businesses like it treats residents, charging them $35 a month?”A building may only have one sewer line, but multiple businesses in that structure, they only get billed once,” said Mayor Bryan Cox. “If we have an apartment complex with one sewer line, but two apartments, we bill them twice. Somehow there is not parity there.”
