MD Ditches Sewer Dump Fee

The MD of Bonnyville has voted to remove its new Sewer Dump fee less than two weeks after introducing it.
The fee came into effect on April 1st, costing 5 dollars per cubic metre at the Ardmore, Fort Kent and Therien lagoons. This caused sewage haulers to increase their rates. While this wasn’t a major cause of distress for property owners who only need to empty their tanks once a year, some residents on lake lots need them emptied once a month or more. The fees would end up costing them hundreds of more dollars a year.

Councillors David Fox, Dana Swigart, Don Sinclair and Mike Krywiak voted to remove the fee, while Reeve Ed Rondeau and Councillors Fred Bamber and Barry Kalinski voted against the motion.
