Frozen Water Line Issues - March 11, 2019

To reduce the possibility of water line freezing, The Town Of Magrath encourages those who live on Centre Street from Harker Avenue to 2 Avenue North, and on 1 Street West from 2 Avenue South to 3 Avenue North to leave one tap dripping or at a slight drizzle. This will keep the water flowing and help prevent water lines from freezing.

Garbage Fee Increase

Council has deemed it necessary to adjust the garbage rates to meet the Town’s costs. Garbage rates will increase $1.00 per month from $13.00 to $14.00 as of March 1, 2019. Bylaw No. 1245 passed on February 12, 2019.

Utility Arrears Policy

On December 11, 2018 Council passed the Policy below to no longer permit unpaid utilities to be transferred to taxes at the end of the year and that any unpaid accounts of a period of 3 months will have the service disconnected until outstanding arrears have been paid and the account is current. There is a fee of $50.00 for each disconnection and each reconnection, to be paid prior to reconnection.
