I have no problem with an area rating, but I think it should be done for all City of Hamilton services. The City of Halifax found that the average cost per household for City services was $1,416 for urban households, but $3,462 for suburban households. Over twice as much! See:

So in Hamilton, a proper area rating system would have suburban property tax rates at well over twice the downtown tax rates.
