Cache Creek Council adopted three utility bylaws at its February 9 meeting. All three contain increased rates for every category of user.
Bylaw 774 (Garbage Collection) plans for an increase in residential service from $39.60 last year to $60 this year. Businesses such as the Post Office and Vet Clinic will see increases from $100 to $200, and gas stations with convenience stores will go from $200 to $400 annually.
Bylaw 772 (Water Rates) has more moderate increases across the board. The residential rate will increase from $153.08 to $185.23 per year.
Likewise, with Bylaw 773 (Sewer Rates), the residential rate goes from $200.82 to $223.91 annually.
The new rates go into effect immediately.
