Langley City Council talks about water rates

The Langley City Council will hold a special workshop meeting next week to talk about water rates.

Water rates were a major issue in last year’s council races, with many candidates in agreement that the rate structure needed to be changed in a way that encourages conservation. Some claim the current rate structure is unfair because utility bills include a large base fee, which makes attempts at water conservation meaningless.

The workshop is 3 p.m. Monday, March 5.

City officials said a hearing will be held at a later date for public comment on rates.
