CBRM water rates

Your water bills could be going up this fall, according to CBC.

CBRM wants to increase the water utility bills because it isn’t making enough money now to pay expenses.  It’ll be increasing the average bill by $5 a month, meaning the first increase on the quarterly bill will be $15.  Then there will be another $3 per quarter next year and an additional $4 the year after.

The increases have to be approved by the Utility and Review Board which will hold public hearings on it.
