No Increase In Water Rates In Bluewater, For NowMarch 10, 2016 3:55am
Bluewater councillors will be looking for input from residents on what to do with water and waste water costs, following the finalizing of the budget.
At a presentation this week from B. M. Ross, council learned that the fees for waste water are not covering the operating costs. As a result, the municipality is dipping into reserves to cover that while the water rates are covering costs and creating a small surplus.
Mayor Tyler Hessel says a motion was passed to approve the report with no rate increase so they could renew their licence.
But shortly after the budget is finalized, the municipality would hold a public meeting to discuss water and waste-water rates in the future.
