Council Meeting, July 26, 2010

One of the important issues for decision making relates to Sewer as follows:

Page 65 (2) Sewer Analysis and Update

Report from the Director of Financial Administration, dated July 14, 2010


THAT the report from the Director of Financial Administration, dated July 14, 2010, regarding Sewer Analysis and Update, be received;

AND THAT staff be directed to implement immediate changes to the sewer utility rates based on option #3, identified in the report dated July 14, 2010, wherein the quarterly fixed rate would be adjusted to $102.50 and the consumption rate would be adjusted to $1.54 per cubic meter;

AND FURTHER THAT the letter, as attached in the report dated July 14, 2010, be sent to the City of Vernon.
For your information, staff's analysis is follows: (note: click on jpeg attachment for viewing and click on again for larger view)

Would it not be nice to have the Sewer Reserves of nearly a million dollars which were squandered by previous Councils for the extension of sewer to please Coldstream Meadows? Contrary to what Staff recommended then those funds were NOT surplus, they were reserved precisely for this kind of situations. Sewer customers are screwed again!

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.
