We also heard recently from Cornwall City Councilor Elaine MacDonald regarding water meters which are being planned to be implemented in Cornwall.
“We want to move to meters so each person will pay for their actual use, not the use as guestimated based on number of faucets, toilets etc in a home. Our water and sewer is a self-contained system. It is not paid for out of property taxes, as roads are, but entirely by users, based on consumption.
It’s about as fair as one can get but we need to take 5 more years ot get there, due to lack of funds up front for meters and installations.
We also hope metering weill enable people to track their usage and consequently, conserve water.
All businesses in town are currently on meters.”
What do you think Cornwall? Do you agree with Councilor MacDonald?
