BRANTFORD, ON – A new Water/Wastewater Billing and Collections Policy has been proposed for the City of Brantford and City staff is seeking public input to inform further development of the policy. The City is committed to ensuring the public has an opportunity to provide their input on this important matter.

In an effort to offer tenants and property owners a forum to provide their feedback regarding the City’s new proposed Water/Wastewater Billing and Collections Policy, we encourage attendance to one of the following public consultation options:

Wednesday January 13, 2016

Brantford Civic Centre, 79 Market St S
6:00 – 8:00 pm

Wednesday January 20, 2016

Brantford Public Library, 173 Colborne St
6:00 – 8:00 pm

During the consultation meetings, City staff will detail the changes of the proposed policy and outline potential efficiencies to be gained as a result of implementation. Responsibilities and obligations of both the landlord and tenant as defined by the Municipal Act will also be reviewed along with a proposed implementation timeline that includes consideration of public input.

Interested residents who can not attend the meeting in person are encouraged to provide their feedback via email to customerservices@brantford.ca
