Utility Rates

The new utility bylaw (Bylaw 01-20 – Utilities Bylaw) for hamlets was approved by Flagstaff County Council.

The principle of ‘cost-recovery accounting’ was applied to determine the rates for water, sewer and garbage services. These rates reflect the costs of providing a safe drinking water system and the cost of the solid waste collection requisition. The application of this principle results in an overall utility increase of approximately 50%. An infrastructure fee for water ($29 monthly) and for sewer ($22.50 monthly) will apply to all accounts, regardless of whether water services have been disconnected. The consumption charge for water consumed in excess of the monthly base rate of 20 cubic metres will be $2 per cubic metre. (Please refer to the 2019 Fees and Charges Schedule.)
