They almost reversed themselves on increased water connection rates for Picton and Wellington last night. But, after much discussion, Prince Edward County Council stuck to a recent decision to put water connection charges in place in those two communities. The 33 hundred dollar charge will be an interim one only, and match the one already in place in Bloomfield.
A committee will work on recommendations on moving forward with increasing water and sewer user rates, and increasing connection charges, reporting within 4 weeks.
Prince Edward Countys water and sewer systems currently do not have nearly enough revenue to cover their costs.
