Increase With a 10 Per Cent Discount Hard on the heels of the announcement that the new tiller plant is working, comes an announcement from Commissioner Grace that the water rates will he raised immediately to go into effect before the next, quarter's water rates are collected. The announcement was made at this morn-fnfe'7 meeting- of the city council when Mr. Grace submitted estimates for the year's showing that. $ll,0()� more will he required for tiie operation of the department this year than last. Mr. Grace recommends a ten per cent increase and no discount as is the, case now, with a penalty for nonpayment within a certain time. Mayor Hardie, however, suggests a 20 per cent, increase on the old rates, and a ten per cent discount, tor prompt payment. Last year the discount plan was abolished and the penalty plan adopted, so that while the rates were not raised water cost 10 per cent more. The new scheme will mean that a 20 per cent increase on the quoted rates at present with a ten per cent discount. This will mean that those who have been paying $5 per quarter will now be billed for $0.00 with a discount of 60 cents for prompt payment. The increase In the rates, says Commissioner Grace, is largely due to the fact that the chemical for treatment of the water in the, filter plant will cost about. $4,500, while the interest and sluicing fund on the filter plant will cost considerably more. Taxes this year are about $1600 higher, while wages paid the workmen of the department have also boon increased. The meter rates will be raised at the same time, according to a schedule brought, in by the commissioner. An effort will be made to graduate the meter rates so that at first metered water will cost almost as 'much, as water on a flat rate basis, the' decrease being made as the larger amount of water is used. Filter Plant Working The filter plant is working today. As a matter of fact the waterworks department stole a march on the citizens and filtered water lias been pumped through the mains for the past two days. This has been suspected by many and Commissioner Freeman confirmed the fact this morning at the city council meeting. Mr. Freeman, however, warns water users that it may be necessary to close down the filter plant for a day tor the purpose of inspection before it is finally taken over by the city. This, together with the necessity of cleaning out the mains and the srandptpes means that householders will not receive filtered water continuously at first, but after about' (en days there should be no more trouble. Many citizens have noticed the clarity of the water yesterday and today and have wondered whether the new-plant was in working order. They now have the assurance that tt Is, and that when the river breaks up the muddy solution of bygone years will not be dished up.
