The cost for water and sewer is one of the best deals in town according to city council.

On Monday, council approved bylaws relating to a two-per cent increase for the provision of both functions, which amounts to a monthly charge of $21.38 per private dwelling for water, and $23.41 for sewer.

Coun. Alan Harrison noted council has not increased the cost of these for the past three years, and called the two percent reasonable. Coun. Chad Eliason noted how for under $60 a month, residents get sewer, water and recyclable collection.

“That’s less than you pay for Internet…,”  he said.
