Public Hearing on Proposed Special Service Levy

This hearing is your opportunity to voice your views on the proposed special service levy on unconnected properties.
 
This plan has been unanimously endorsed by the Mayor and Council. If approved by The Municipal Board, unconnected properties will pay an annual levy of $100 (prorated the first year) until they hook up. The aim is to keep costs manageable for the first households moving to the new wastewater system. After six years, Council would re-evaluate the need for the levy, based on operating costs and the number of connections, and decide whether a proposal to continue the levy should be put forth.
 
Before the hearing, residents are encouraged to read the proposal and take part in a Virtual Open House to learn more about the proposal.
  
When:
February 2, 2021 at 6:00 p.m.

How:   
The hearing will be conducted on Zoom and livestreamed on the RM's YouTube Channel. Residents making presentations will call in by telephone. Council members will participate through video communication, as they do for other Council meetings.

Results of the July 2020 Survey 
 
From June 30 to August 4, residents were invited to share their views and help the RM make important decisions as we prepare to implement the new South St. Andrews Wastewater System. Thanks to everyone who participated!
 
The response rate was excellent, with 655 people sharing their views. About 90% of responses were from within the wastewater service area, which indicates we heard from about a third of the households who will be using the new system.
