A report detailing Warman’s water consumption, pricing and distribution was presented to Warman city council on Monday, October 23.
The 11-page document, entitled “2017 Water Rate Report,” was prepared by Warman City Manager Bob Smith at the direction of council.
The report is available in its entirety online at http://warman.ca/DocumentCenter/View/1674.
Smith said 82 per cent of the city’s revenue from water and sewer payments goes directly to cover the cost of water delivered by SaskWater, the city’s supplier. SaskWater is a provincial crown utility that owns and operates the potable water pipeline from Saskatoon to Warman and other communities in the area.
The report documents the series of annual price increases charged by SaskWater over the past seven years. The city was hit with a 9.5 per cent price hike in the spring of 2017 and faces a further 9.25 per cent increase in 2018. Continue reading “Water rates focus of report to Warman council”
