Aldermen Pour Effort Into Lowering Water Utilities
LETHBRIDGE: The ebb and flow of Lethbridge's water utility rates is now in the spotlight.
City council met Monday to explore ways to drop the price tag on your water bill.
"During the election and right after the election I had dozens of phone calls and emails from people on this," says Ald. Liz Iwaskiw, who first asked for a utility rates review shortly after taking her council seat. "Some people, myself included, had fixed charges that were double their consumption costs. And that just makes no sense to me."
Iwaskiw plans to bring the issue to a vote at the May 2nd council meeting. She says her resolution should answer one main question.
"How can we break down the cost of service and how can we change things so that we can reduce the bill for as many people as possible?"
