Minimal increase for Trail residents on upcoming Garbage, Water and Sewer bills

No big increase for residents in Trail when it comes to their 2019 Garbage, Water and Sewer rates.

Mayor Lisa Pasin says the water rate was held flat, and there's a 2 dollar increase in garbage and a 3 dollar increase in sewer.

That's a 0.7 increase annually, or roughly 5 dollars a year.

She says the taxation rate is set based on need where it's strictly a cost recovery, so it helps keep the tax rates and increases low.

The annual bill is mailed out towards the end of January.
