Residents should be prepared for another rate increase.
Kenora City Council is expected to pass a raise in sewer and water rates tomorrow. The first raise, taking place on January 1, is expected to be an eight per cent hike.
In 2019, water and sewer rates are expected to raise an additional 5.5 per cent.
Council noted that the rate increases were part of the city's five year plan that ended last year. They also note that the raises are part of Ontario's initiative to ensure that municipalities have sufficient reserves.
