Rates and Fees
The Town of Oromocto and Base Gagetown share a longstanding and unique partnership. One element of this partnership is that the Base Gagetown Water Treatment Plant and Wastewater Treatment Plant have been serving the Base and the Town since 1963 and 1954, respectively. In essence, the Base is the Town’s water supplier. Water and sewerage costs to the Town have significantly increased in the past five years (50% for water and 67% for sewerage). The other cost driver is the maintenance costs of the distribution system, operated by the Town, which have doubled in five years. The current billing system was simply no longer sustainable.
In order to offset these rising costs, the Town will be introducing an increase to the fixed service fee in 2023 from $12 per quarter to $37 per quarter. This service fee practice aligns with other jurisdictions to address the costs of maintaining, servicing and renewing the Town’s water and sewerage infrastructure. This quarterly fee is also being implemented to invoice customers appropriately for the costs of the water and sewerage systems, and will help to reduce rate volatility. Therefore, a quarterly fixed service fee of $37 per quarter, beginning in 2023 is necessary. Each subsequent year the fee will be reviewed during Council’s budgeting process and will require Council’s approval.
