Melrose Park raises water fees on commercial properties

As a matter of tax policy, raising water fees for commercial properties makes sense because commercial properties pay less than their share compared to single-family homes. This is because commercial properties more effectively game the assessment process.

For a single-family home it doesn't make sense to pay Michael Madigan's law firm $1,000 to appeal your assessment. He's gonna save you less than $1,000 on average. But for commercial properties it does make sense.

See Melrose Park Herald (David Pollard).
