FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 28, 2014
Councillor Eddie Rice, Chair of the Water and Sewer Utility Committee, announced recognition for the 1,000th City resident who voluntarily switches from the flat rate system to the metered billing system option. Based on applications received to date, the program is at the threshold of meeting its target of 1,000 applications during 2014. The City expects to announce the recipient in the next few days.
"The City would like to celebrate reaching our target on this program by offering the 1,000th customer the equivalent of six months complimentary water and sewer service in their residence," says Mayor Clifford Lee. "This recognition is in addition to the free meter and installation already offered by the program."
The program will continue until December 31, 2014 with the ongoing offer of free water meters and free installation.
"For each group of 100 customers who sign up after the 1,000th applicant, an additional draw will be made from those 100 applicants for a $100 credit towards fees charged to their residential water and sewer bill," says Councillor Rice. "This incentive will continue to include each group of 100 applicants beyond one thousand until December 31, 2014."
Further information on the program is available through the City of Charlottetown website with links to the Water Meter Program.
