The new lagoon isn't going to cost ratepayers as much as originally thought.Council had warned homeowners that because of the skyrocketing costs they could see a bill of up to $300 a year on their taxes. At that point the decision was made to re-tender parts of the project in hopes of lowering that amount and it seems council made the right decision because the last figures came in and they are significantly lower than the previous ones. So while there is still a bit of number crunching to do mayor Greg Fehr shared that homeowners will definitely be paying less than $300 a year. One other piece of good news is that all the testing has been done and the lagoon is ready for use however fehr says they still need to put in all the pipes and pumps which will only happen in spring.
