2021 Draft Water & Sewer Budget

2021 – Draft Water and Sewer Budget - Staff will present the draft 2021 Water and Sewer budget to the public for comment at the November 10th, 2020 Committee of the Whole meeting. The draft includes a recommendation for a 1.95% increase to water and sewer rates.

The justification for the increase is primarily centered around an increase in the cost to undertake construction projects locally. Increased costs have had a significant impact on the long-term capital plan for water and sewer. Please take note of the following important dates below:
