Florida city aims to prevent making utility notification mistake again

(April 18, 2011) -- RV park owners in Zephryhills, Fla., are angry about the city council's decision last year to charge utility base rate fees on a per-lot basis, even if lots sit unoccupied for several months at a time, reports Tbo.com. They're also angry that they weren't warned about the change.

ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. — RV park owners here are angry about the city council’s decision last year to charge utility base rate fees on a per-lot basis, even if lots sit unoccupied for several months at a time, reports Tbo.com.

According to the news report: :The change went into effect in January and now that snowbirds have left the area, RV park owners say the charge — $14.10 per month for those in the city limits, $19.25 for those outside — is a financial hardship they shouldn’t have to endure. But besides the dollars and cents of the issue, the area’s RV park owners are angry that they weren’t warned of the change.”

The city is working to ensure such oversights don’t happen again.
