Some residents in Stirling/Rawdon will be noticing a difference in their sewer and water bills.
Monday, Stirling/Rawdon council approved new rates for this year.
Effective May first, residents will see their sewer charges go up just over 9 dollars, or 19 and a half percent.
Water rates won’t go up as much, at only 2 percent. Mayor Peter Koistra said the sewer rates had to go up significantly because of mandated spending on wastewater system upgrades. 876 households and businesses will be effected.
