City Council has approved the 2024 water and wastewater budget. The annual increase is approximately 4.3%, as outlined in the City’s 10-year financial plan. The average 5 room home will pay $24 more for water and $35 more for wastewater per year, or $59 total for municipal service. The same household will pay approximately $4.92 more per month on their utility bill compared to last year.

The 10-year financial plan was approved in 2021 to address a deficit in the water and wastewater budget, with nominal increases set over a number of years. The City anticipates “breaking even” on the water budget at the end of 2023, one year ahead of projections in the long-term financial plan.

Future plans for water and wastewater will see continued investment in the renewal and enhancement of critical infrastructure. Included in the approved budget is the refurbishment of a clarifier at the Mattagami Wastewater Treatment Plant. Budgeted at just under $4 million, the clarifier is a settling tank that allows for the constant removal of solids. Capital projects under water service include reviewing the backwash pump and piping, part of process related infrastructure with an estimated cost of $1.6 million. Both projects will contribute to improved system stability and controllability, which saves time and money.

The water and wastewater budget is approved separately from the general 2024 municipal budget or taxation fund because revenues are sourced from user fees and not property tax.

City Council has approved new ice rental rates effective January 2, 2024. The new “Prime” and Non-Prime” rates will be for both adults and youth. The change supports the City’s new on-line recreation software that also launches in January, giving residents the option to book ice rentals, swimming lessons, and more on one convenient website.

The Prime rate of $155 will apply Monday to Friday from 5:00 p.m. to midnight and on weekends. The Non-Prime rate of $125 will apply Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The City has dropped the “summer ice rate.” Prime and Non-Prime rates will apply year-round. Regular ice users who have already booked their rental times, will pay their existing fees until the end of the season March 31, 2024.

The change in ice rental rates will not impact the City’s user fee revenue, with the hope that the simplified price and new online booking system will encourage future ice rentals. Pre-school and adult skates Monday to Friday will remain free. The price for lobby rental and non-residential or commercial ice rentals will stay the same, and the weekend community skates will remain at $5 per person, children under 4 free of charge.
