A rural councillor “absolutely wimped out” in voting against a lower stormwater fee increase for 2018, a council colleague said Wednesday.

Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder skewered Osgoode Coun. George Darouze after a council meeting at which politicians voted 20-3 to increase the stormwater fee by five per cent in 2018, rather than the 13 per cent recommended by staff. Councillors Jeff Leiper and Michael Qaqish also voted against it.
