City of Castlegar forced to reschedule water and sewer metered rate open house

The City of Castlegar’s 2017 Water and Sewer Metered Rate Plan open house has been rescheduled for next week.

A full house turned up to the City of Castlegar’s open house to discuss metered rates for water and sewer on Thursday, but everyone had to be turned away after the meeting was cancelled at the last minute.

Over 80 people crowded into the Community Forum for the city’s 2017 Water and Sewer Metered Rate Plan open house. Residents wanted to know what rates city staff were proposing for next year, but Chris Barlow, director of transportation and civic works, said setting the rates will have to wait until after initial public consultation.

But that public consultation was delayed when consultants from Urban Systems, who were scheduled to make a presentation at the open house, were unable to land in Castlegar.

Councillor Sue Heaton-Sherstobitoff said the consultants had been trying to fly in throughout the day, but in the end Barlow had to apologize to a disappointed crowd and invited everyone to help themselves to a doughnut.

The open house has been rescheduled for Thursday, Oct. 20, 5-7 p.m. at the Castlegar Community Forum (101-445 13th Ave.).
