City Council keeps 2021 utility rates steady with COVID grant
Chestermere City Council has approved the use of a provincial grant so that residents will not experience an increase to their utility rates this year.
While a 2% increase to 2021 rates (approximately $2.83 per month per homeowner) was necessary to help with increased inflation costs, City Council approved using a COVID-19 relief grant to offset that increase in a decision made last November.
“We recognize that this has been a tough year for our community,” says Mayor Chalmers. “This Council has been committed to cutting taxes, reducing red tape and sorting out utility issues. By putting the COVID-19 grant towards utility rates, we have delivered on that commitment again.”
