County of Barrhead Water Rates
Residents of the County of Barrhead will see water rates going up in 2018. The Barrhead Leader reports that, at the December 5 council meeting, council voted for a 2-point-5 percent increase. Some councillers weren't happy with the increase. Councillor Marvin Schatz asked why the new rates didn't include and agricultural rate, as a delegation was asking for it some months ago. County CAO Debbie Oyarzun said they didn't include an agricultural rate at this time, as they need more time to study the issue.
