You can expect your water bill to be a bit higher come January.

 

City Council approved a rate hike at the last regular meeting of Council last week. The proposed rates are in the table below. 

 

The Public Utility Board (P.U.B.) will have a hearing for the rates sometime in the New Year, so these rates approved by Council will be the interim rates. 

 

Mayor Dennis Fenske spoke to 102.9 CHTM and said that the rates reflect the cost of operation. He said that the City isn't in a money making business, and that the City has to break even at the end of the year.

The resolution to approve the rates was one of the more contentious issues at the meeting, with Councillor Duncan Wong raising his voice in opposition. He asked how Council was supposed to know that they were running a deficit and approve the rates without having figures in front of them. 

 

Before the meeting started, a question came the public as to what will happen should the P.U.B. reject the proposed rate increase. Mayor Fenske responded to the question on City Beat late last week by saying that the rates will be adjusted accordingly if that is what the P.U.B. decides, and the City will have to look for another way to make up the deficit. 

 

The next regular meeting of Thompson City Council will take place on Monday at CIty Hall starting at 7:00pm. It will be the last regular meeting until the New Year.
