The City of Ocala used a "Fire Tax" to offset the costs of the fire department in the city on the utilities bill of every resident for over a decade resulting in a lawsuit brought by Discount Sleep of Ocala. The lawsuit was recently won resulting in a $80 million settlement.
In the same month that the City of Ocala has to take out a loan from Truist bank to repay citizens of illegally garnered money to the tune of $80 million the City of Ocala utilities hikes their rates from .028 to .056 per 1000/KWH claiming it is due to "fuel costs." The average home will see a $28 increase from $28.00 per 1000KWH to $56 per 1000KWH. I don't know about you, but I think they'll be getting that illegal tax somehow.
A graph of their projected rates showing from $28.00 to $56.00/1000 KWH.
