Utility Rates for 2023
Albertans have recently witnessed dramatic increases in natural gas and electricity prices as well as an increase in everyday items such as grocery shopping. Chauvin Council upon reviewing the utility rates for 2023, determined that to continue to provide the high level of service, the monthly cost for water, sewer, gas, garbage and recycle would need to be adjusted.
While council understands that funds are tight in everyone’s household, it is still important that the level of service provided to residents remain a priority.
Beginning January 1, 2023, the new rates will be as follows:
Water $28.00 --- Sewer $26.00 --- Garbage $31.00 ---
Recycle $6.50 --- Gas $27.00
