Don buildings already pay for garbage collection through their property taxes?
The cost of Solid Waste Management is currently paid through the property taxes that a building pays. The City wanted to remove the cost of solid waste services from the property tax bills once the new fees began; however, because the current costs for solid waste services cannot easily be removed from the property tax bill, every multi-unit building will receive a rebate equal to the average amount collected through the tax bill. The rebate for multi-unit building owners will be $157 per unit per year and will be shown as a credit on the new Utility Bill. For multi-unit buildings with rental tenants, the building property owner will get an annual rebate of $157 per unit applied against charges incurred by the building. Condo properties, whose bills are typically made out to the condo corporation, will also see a rebate of $157 per unit on their bill, which will offset charges incurred by the condo building. The rebate will be prorated over all the Utility Bills a building receives ove
