Joe Gallipeau, a Smiths Falls developer and town councillor is suing the town he represents because he says the municipality has been overcharging his business for water and related services.

A statement of claim filed at the Ontario Superior Court in Perth on Nov. 22 claims that in December 2015, Gallipeau became aware that his business, the Gallipeau Centre, was being improperly billed for a base water rate, a residential water rate, and a sewer charge, and claims that these charges should not apply as billed.
