The water rates in the Town of The Pas could be going up, if approved by town council. According to town councilor Chad Zolinski the town is required to conduct a water rate study every few years which is made based on expenses and income for the water and sewage rates.
Town council passed a bylaw back in 2017 to raise the water rates and they have received approval for a rate hike from the water services board and the public utilities board.
Town council is expected to vote on the second and third reading of the rate hike at the next town council meeting on March 26th. If it is passed the rates would go up on April 1st
