The Future Oxford Legacy Fund will allow partners the ability to access funds to further program initiatives and achieve goals and targets in the community identified by the Plan.

Proposed water/wastewater rates for 2017-2020

Oxford County Public Works will present proposed water and wastewater rates for 2017 – 2020 for all municipal systems in Oxford County. The County provides water services to 21 communities, 11 of those also have municipal wastewater services. All of the wastewater systems and the three urban water systems are maintained as independent financial systems. The township water systems are grouped into one financial system to achieve economy of scale.

A full breakdown of the proposed water and wastewater rates by system, along with year over year changes for the typical annual user are available in Council report PW 2016-58.
