As a result of the FY2022 budget hearing process, City Councilman Brian O’Neill has negotiated that the owner-occupied duplex trash fee be eliminated after being increased to $250.00 during the pandemic. After a collaborative effort between Councilman O’Neill and the Kenney administration, rather than be reduced to the prior amount, the fee will be eliminated altogether.
“The City should not penalize owner-occupied duplex owners when they do not charge residential single-family rental property owners”, O’Neill said. “Owner-occupied duplexes offer people an affordable option that promotes pride in home ownership in the Far Northeast and throughout Philadelphia”.
If you are a duplex owner-occupant and have any questions regarding this matter or for more information, please call Councilman O’Neill’s office.
