What principles guide growth in the County? How will the municipality pay to maintain and expand the systems that deliver safe drinking water and treat wastewater?
Those questions and more will be answered during a virtual information session on Tuesday, April 20 from 6-8 pm. While County-wide in scope, the information session will have a particular focus on Wellington given the recent development interests and the pressure on existing water and wastewater infrastructure.
Directors Peter Moyer (Development Services), Don Caza (Water and Wastewater Services), and Amanda Carter (Finance) will present during the information session. They will provide more details on the expected growth, explain the infrastructure needs to meet that growth, and outline the financial tools the municipality has to pay for replacing and building new water and wastewater infrastructure.
The upcoming information session is also intended to help educate the public and provide greater context for Council’s decision-making in the coming months. Specifically, the municipality will consider new water rates before the current rates expire in December 2021.
The information session, which will take place virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions, will stream live on the County’s YouTube channel from 6-8 pm. A recording of the information session will be made available to the public.
