Kiss eager to continue relationship on council

District of Coldstream: Incumbent Gyula Kiss is keen on serving his constituents

Longtime Coldstream resident Gyula Kiss also has a long record of looking out for taxpayers in the community.

Incumbent Gyula Kiss is keen on serving constituents, specifically directing his efforts to ensuring service costs, such as water and sewer rates, are “fair and equitable.”

The 78-year-old father of three, has lived in Coldstream since 1976.

He aims to represent the interests of all the taxpayers and wants to continue in the same spirit.

“My efforts to have the Master Water Plan reviewed will continue,” said Kiss. “I am not going to support it in its present form.”

Kiss also plans to continue his efforts to change the way water rates are collected.

“My intent is to have a fair and equitable water rate structure where the customers of the utility pay for what they use and low water consumers do not subsidize high water users,” said Kiss, who has been elected five times before (including one term as mayor).

“The current ‘base fee’ is incomprehensible and represents the most punishing form of taxation that does not relate to either property values nor water consumption. I hope to find some support among the newly elected group of politicians to change the format to something that is in the interest of all users.”
