City backs off proposed 13% increase in stormwater fees

By Jennifer McIntosh, Ottawa Community News, September 29, 2017

The city will finance more work on water infrastructure through deficit thanks to a decision to back off a proposed increase in revenue from stormwater fees.

Instead of the recommended 13 per cent per year over the next decade, proposed by staff at the city’s environment committee on Sept. 19, council voted on a motion that would keep the increases to five per cent per year.
