Over the past year or so, the Village has seen a number of small increases to the rate we pay Aqua 7 Regional Water Commission to purchase water for our residents. Aqua 7 has had increases passed onto them from the Town of Drumheller. The Village has managed to maintain our rate until now, so effective July 1st the water rate our customers pay will be $3.70 per cubic meter (that is an increase of 10¢ per cubic meter).

Summer meeting will be held August 18th. The public is welcome to attend this meeting. Regular meetings will resume in September.
