Here is our current poll:
The New Tecumseth Council believes that we need to attract industry to have a balanced tax base. To achieve that, and to be competitive with surrounding municipalities, our Industrial Water Rate is lower than the Domestic Rate for household use. Having inherited a huge debt for the Water Pipeline from Georgian Bay, water rates have skyrocketed and Council are in a financial dilemma. While Council have averted a rate increase for 2005 by eliminating the pipeline debt component of the budget, the question of water rates remain before the community.
How do you feel that water rates should be set?
