Elk point residents will see a credit on their upcoming utility bill after council accidentally increased the water rate a month earlier than intended.
The extra fees for December will be reimbursed in two ways. First, a ten dollar credit will be added to customers’ February bills. Second, any customers that have used beyond the base rate of 14 cubic metres will get a credit one dollar per cubic meter used on this month’s bill as well.
The town apologizes for the mistake and thanks the customer who pointed it out to them.
