CARSTAIRS – Town council has approved water rate increases under the municipality’s 2022 Rates and Fees Bylaw.

The move also came by way of motion at the recent regularly scheduled council meeting and is effective April 1.

The meter consumption charge water rate increases from $2.80 to $2.91 per cubic metre.

Where a separate metre has been installed for each unit within a building, a fixed charge of $14 per month shall apply to each unit plus a metered consumption charge of $2.91 per cubic metre, up from $2.80.

The charge for water sold in bulk quantities is now $5.16 per cubic metre, up from $5.05. Users without an account will be charged a flat fee of $30 plus consumption.
