Council recommended to maintain water fees


Despite protests from Airport Subdivision residents, City Manager Dianne Hunter is recommending that council continue with its current rate policy for water and sewer usage.


Hunter feels that this policy is one that promotes water conservation and fairly charges both rural and city residents. Hunter added that she feels the City’s first priority must be its citizens, and that they have a right to receive fair compensation from rural residents for their usage of water and waste facilities.

Area C Director Arthur Hadland feels that residents of the Airport Subdivision are not being treated equitably.

Hadland further feels that council needs to come up with a more unfirom strategy that focuses more on cooperation at all levels.
