What is tiering? Treating differently situated entities differently.

Why would someone use tiering?

         Sometimes it doesn't make sense to treat every entity the same way. For example, it wouldn't make sense for a restaurant that seats 30 people to be required to have the same number of restroom stalls as a restaurant that seats 300. In cases like this, it is a benefit to treat different sized or differently situated entities differently. See KRS 13A.210(2) for other instances where tiering may be applied.
