BANKS - The Banks City Council last month unanimously passed an ordinance, which goes into effect Friday, establishing a park services fee to fund maintenance, improvements, and operations for Greenville City Park and Log Cabin Park. 

Residential units both inside the city limits and the city’s urban growth boundary -- any and all individual units that use Banks’ water utility -- will be charged $5 on the owner’s or occupant’s monthly utility bill beginning July 1, which coincides with the city’s fiscal year and allows time to further amended the ordinance if needed.

Businesses and all non-residential units in Banks will be charged $10 each month, the only exceptions being premises owned by the city and unimproved premises within the Banks city limits that are exempt from property taxes.
