Many churches, non-profits to start paying for water usage

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The majority of Chicago's non-profit organizations will have to start paying for water after Mayor Rahm Emanuel's revised legislation passed in city council Wednesday.

Churches and non-profits with assets under $1 million will remain exempt, but, groups with assets between $1 million and $10 million are eligible for 60-percent exemption.

If a group makes between $10 million and $250 million, they'll receive a 25-percent exemption. Any group with assets exceeding $250 million will not receive an exemption.

The agreement is retroactive to the beginning of this year.
