PURPOSE OF REPORT
This report presents Bylaw 45/2019 for all three readings on December 16, 2019 if Council so desires.

Bylaw 45/2019 is an omnibus bylaw that amends the Solid Waste, Water, Storm Sewer and Sanitary Sewer Bylaws, to allow new utility rates, fees and charges to be implemented on January 1, 2020. As such, Bylaw 45/2019 is a key foundational component to the utility side of the 2020 budget that is also being proposed for Council approval on December 16, 2019.

Attached to this Report are copies of the four underlying utility bylaws as they will look if Bylaw 45/2019 is passed. In the case of the Solid Waste, Storm Sewer and Sanitary Sewer Bylaws the only changes are to the doillar numnbers in the rate schedules. In the case of the Water Bylaw, in addition to rate changes for customers on the "smart meter" program, there are a number of amendments for the purpose of cleaning up ambiguous language in the "opt out" bylaw that received three readings on December 2, 2019.
