Sanitary Sewer Financing

Recognizing that connecting to the municipal sewer system can be costly, and yet wanting to encourage residents to connect, Council has passed a Sewer Financing Bylaw. This will allow you to connect to the sewer at this time, and pay the total costs of the connection over a period of 5, 10 or 15 years.
