Cranbrook, BC (January 24, 2022) – Beginning January 1, 2022, the water rate for residential customers in Cranbrook increased by four dollars per month. The other utility fees remain unchanged from 2021.
The additional funds will be used to create three new full-time utility operator positions. Due to the increasing rate of breaks and repairs needed to the water system infrastructure, additional staff are required so that work can be completed as quickly as possible, minimizing disruptions to our residents and businesses.
|Breakdown of Fees||2021||2022|
Those signed up for pre-authorized payments will notice this increase on each prepayment withdrawal scheduled on the 1st of February, April, June, August, October, and December 2022.
|Bi-Monthly Pre-Payment Amount||2021||2022|
|With garbage collection||$119||$127|
|Without garbage collection||$105||$113|
The City’s utility bill covers water, sewer, garbage collection and landfill fees for your home or business. Utility bills will arrive three times per year at the end of March, July, and November.
