  11. A Case for Changing SC's Annexation Laws

    Columbia city residents must pay: City and county property taxes: $730 Water and sewer bill: $34.96 per month Storm water fee: $4.80 per month Richland County residents pay: Property tax (includes recreation commission, fire service, etc.): $590 Water and sewer bill: $60.70 per month Garbage service fee: $249 curb pickup So City of Columbia is: $769.76 And Richland County is: $899.7 Is it me, or is it cheaper to live in the city limits on a $100,000 home based on this information?
