The Brownsville Herald in Texas says the San Benito utility board will try to pass a $10 monthly fee on manufactured homes to help pay for a $17.7 million water and sewer plant upgrade in this city just north of Brownsville. Last year the city levied the fee on unmetered recreational vehicles (RVs) only to discover a law that prohibits that fee, and had to return the funds. Fun N Sun RV Resort’s 1,400 sites includes 300 MH sites which the city intends to collect on since they are permanent residences. MHProNews has learned San Benito also hopes to collect the fee from fixed RVs.
