Options for in-sourcing and out-sourcing utility services and rate reductions presented to Council

Copy of CUI Update (1)

Tonight, Chestermere’s City Council will consider public input on a proposal to in-source or out-source utility services and cut utility rates by up to 8 percent.

“After months of hard work and detailed analysis, we are pleased to receive options for a new structure that allows for sustainable utility services at reduced rates,” says Chestermere Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “Our residents have told us time and again that they wanted relief from high utility rates. This has been at the forefront of our priorities since the day we took our oaths of office and we are pleased to reach this milestone.”

The meeting, taking place at 7pm tonight, will outline two options for the future of utilities in Chestermere: either to out-source utility services (such as garbage collection) or in-source utility services under the City of Chestermere. Both options under the new structure can result in rate decreases.

Following a summary presentation, City Council will have a chance to ask questions and then hear from residents about the options presented.

“For months, our team has worked hard to find solutions for how we can provide safe and reliable utilities at better rates,” says Chalmers. “Tonight, we will learn more about what that entails and we invite residents to join us and share their thoughts on the future of utilities in Chestermere.”

Read the proposal and watch the meeting live at www.chestermere.ca/agendas.

City residents will also be able to participate online following the meeting on the City of Chestermere’s Facebook page.
