In light of the recent decision of Castlegar Council to keep utility rates static for 2011, I’ve posted below copies of the Water Management Plan reports that were completed in March and June of 2009. These reports outline a planned $66 Million cost over 20 years on water infrastructure. As far as I know, there are no similar reports for Sewer, Stormwater, and Road Infrastructure and City owned property and facilities.
During the Recreation Complex discussions, it seems as if I were the only person talking about the future costs we could face. Like deciding to go and purchase ice cream when you aren’t sure that you have enough money for the week’s groceries. These reports were difficult to find on the City Website, so I thought I’d duplicate them here. Download them here: Phase 1 and Phase 2.
