Water bills will be processed every month in 2018.
Following numerous complaints of excessive water usage, a third party report in the spring of 2017 recommended the city move away from the current bi-monthly billing.
The move was pushed through unanimously by city council.
"Moving to the monthly billing will help to alleviate some of the problems with large consumptions," explained councillor Gordon Harris. "I think the monthly reading will catch these things sooner in the process."
The last bi-monthly water bill will be due on January 15. Residents will see their first monthly bill beginning February 15 for January's water usage.
"Having the monthly water bills will help people immensely with budgeting," said mayor Gale Katchur. "It's the same in our family, we'd rather pay something once a month, then we can budget for it."
Moving to monthly billing is just one step of a seven year plan to upgrade the water monitoring infrastructure. Over the summer, the city completed their radio reader installations.
Katchur hinted of a possible app that will let residents dive into the finer details of their bills and monitor their consumption.
