To whom It May Concern,
I assist a company that provides
third party utility billing services to building owners in Georgia using the City of Covington for their utility services. My company specifically helps our clients
recover utility costs (e.g., water/sewer/gas/electric/trash and pest) from
their tenants. Our single-family home clients are the property
owners/landlords, that are set-up with their tenants using a re-billing method.
Each home gets individually metered by the City for their usage, but since
the accounts are in the client’s name, the client re-bills the metered usage
for each home, typically with a service fee attached for the billing services
provided. From my understanding, this type of method does not seem to be
prohibited by the City's rules and regulations. Please let me know if my
understanding of the above is accurate and compliant with the City or
direct me towards any applicable rules/regulations I should be aware of. Your guidance is greatly appreciated.
