Water rates, of course: a typical example.

Hello Everyone!

I know I was not doing my job on the blog for a while but I had a plausible excuse: I had to assess the damage to my house. It is considerable as the photos below indicate.

Let me start my new input to the blog by relating an incident I witnessed yesterday. One of the taxpayers of Coldstream came to the office to pay her water bill. She had consumed a total of 8 cubic meters of water during the fourth quarter of 2010. For this she paid $50.17. If the current plan adopted by NORD stands next year she would pay $71.00, an increase of $20.83 or 41.5 %. She is a senior and not very happy. I cannot blame her!

About Me

I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
