PUBLIC NOTICE – WATER & SEWER UTILTY RATES
Please take notice that effective May 1, 2015, the Village of Bethune will be increasing rates charged for water and sewer utility. The municipality has implemented a 7% increase effective the May 2015 billing statement.
The increase is a direct result of increases in charges from SaskWater commencing in May 2015, as well as increased operating costs associated with utility costs, chemical costs and other normal operational expenditures. SaskWater rates charged to the municipality will increase a further 7% in 2016 as part of a two year 7% increase per year rate adjustment. The Council is taking this opportunity to advise that reviews of the rates the municipality charges for will be done in the following years coinciding with SaskWater rate changes.
The Council appreciates your understanding as the municipality tries to limit the impact utility rate increases have on each household.
