I've heard rumours that some are saying the recent provincial grant of almost 1.8 million dollars to the Aqua7 Regional Water Commission will not change the water rates or fees to the individual users in Beiseker.
Nothing along those lines has been decided by the Water Commission yet. We have yet to have a meeting since the grant announcement was made. I personally would like to see a modest drop in water rates but that will be up to the Water Commission when it meets. Our next meeting will likely be held in mid to late February. At that time our manager will present a proposed budget to us. It will be fine tuned and hopefully accepted at that meeting.
