Billing – Rates and fees
According to the policy, the following monthly rates shall apply, as adopted under the bylaw dated November 2, 2010, to ensure that revenues cover operating, capital and debt repayment costs. No subsequent rate increases are planned at this time.
Where a water and sewer service connection is supplied by the Town:
0 to 2,000 gallons minimum charge of $35.00 for a one-month period
2,001 to 6,000 gallons $8.81 per 1,000 gallons
6,001 to 10,000 gallons $8.93 per 1,000 gallons
Over 10,000 gallons $9.08 per 1,000 gallons
Where a water service connection only is supplied by the Town:
0 to 2,000 gallons minimum charge of $32.00 for a one-month period
2,001 to 6,000 gallons $6.60 per 1,000 gallons
6,001 to 10,000 gallons $6.70 per 1,000 gallons
Over 10,000 gallons $6.80 per 1,000 gallons
Council will conduct an annual review of the waterworks policy to ensure revenues continue to cover operating, capital and debt repayment costs. By planning waterworks rates ahead of time, users will be able to prepare for and adjust to fluctuations. Bylaws will be passed when it is necessary to change the water rates.
Payment for a utility service is due upon receipt and is past due 30 days from the billing date.
Payments can be made through cash, cheque, debit or pre-authorized debit through your banking institution.
Re-Reads and Meter Tests
At the consumer’s request, meters will be re-read, or the consumer can read their meter and call it in to confirm it was an accurate read.
Also at the consumer’s request, a meter will be pulled and tested and a new meter installed. If the meter tested is working properly, a charge of $40 will be billed.
To make one of these requests, contact the Town Office at (306) 563-5773 or Email.
