Service Charges

Cities can collect user fees for certain services offered that operate as a direct individual service such as water and sewer, parking, copy services and recreational facilities.  Although some of these functions can be run like a businell, revenues generated from service charges cannot exceed the cost of providing the corresponding service beyond a reasonable amount.  Although utility providers collect service charges, they are not typically compared to other service charges such as solid waste collection and transit.
