CAPE CORAL, Fla. – Cape Coral residents’ monthly electric bills will soon be taxed even more than before to offset debt on the Oasis charter school buildings. The city owns all four charter schools.

Starting in April, the city will eliminate a public service tax exemption on anything under 500-kilowatt hours, which will translate to an increase of $2.25 a month or $27 a year. It was approved by the city council last October after several public meetings.

A seven percent public service tax on LCEC electric bills is nothing new in Cape Coral. In 2013, it was enacted for bills over 500-kilowatt hours. For perspective, the average Cape Coral household doubles that every month.
