The Town of Parry Sound's rates are divided into four parts:
- Water Usage Rates
- Water Capital/Base Rates
- Sewer Usage Rates
- Sewer/Base Capital Rates
What is a "usage rate"?
Usage rates are set based on the operating costs for water and sewer. Examples of operating costs are staff wages, distribution costs, and plant maintenance costs.
What is a "capital/base rate"?
Capital rates are set based on the expected capital-related costs. Examples of capital costs are the costs to put new pipes in the ground, and treatment facilities. The purpose of these charges is to help reduce the amount of debt required to finance these projects.
