Citizens of Canal Flats will be seeing some changes in the cost of accessing municipal services in the village.

During the regular April 27th meeting, a bylaw to establish fees and charges for municipal services was accepted by the Village of Canal Flats council.

Council agreed to adopt the fees and charges regarding Bylaw No. 169, 2015.

“The (staff) recommendation is that the Village of Canal Flats fees and charges Bylaw No. 169, 2015 is accepted and adopted,” said Mayor Ute Juras, while calling for a motion.

Councillor Karl Sterzer moved the decision, Councillor Erin Gornik seconded and ultimately the motion was carried.

However, Councillor Marie Delorme opposed the decision.

“Bylaw 169 is the fees and charges bylaw that is replacing Bylaw 129,” wrote Sylvie Hoobanoff, deputy director of corporate services for the Village of Canal Flats, by email following the meeting. “The increased rates are for tax certificates, water and sewer tolls for 2016, building permit fees and subdivision fees.”
