Greater Vernon water rates scrutinized

Greater Vernon officials will take a look at the future cost of water.

The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee has directed staff to prepare a report so elected officials can discuss the various potential sources of revenue, including taxation, to meet the water utility’s future needs.

“We want more information so we can make a decision on rates,” said Coldstream director Jim Garlick.

BX-Silver Star director Mike Macnabb wants the capacity of the water system considered as part of the discussions.

“Are there other opportunities to sell water beyond what’s been identified? Right now we’re just looking at what we have,” he said.
