Release of #Ottcity Water Rate study requested of Mayor Watson
Dear Mayor Watson,
I would like to seek your assistance in obtaining information about water rate options in Ottawa.
In particular... Would it be possible for the City of Ottawa release a study without requiring a formal Access to Information request? The study was done at the taxpayer's expense for the City by a US based company Raftelis: http://www.raftelis.com/experience/case-studies/city-of-Ottawa
I believe that the problems/issues with our current water rate structure have not changed materially since the study was completed several years ago.
Perhaps Ottawa needs to revisit the water rate issue and/or have Mr. Hughes review the key recommendations? I noticed that our current water rate structure has once again put us into a deficit position already this year.
Water rates may also be of interest to the ESAC where Councillor Moffatt is a member. Councillor Hume is quite knowledgeable about this issue from his time as Chair of PEC.
Thank you for considering my request.
