Aggregate fees are set to double as of July 1, says Puslinch Mayor Dennis Lever.
Lever noted he had a conference call with Ministry of Natural Resources staff in Peterborough a few prior to the April 5 council meeting.
At that time, he was told this remains an interim step.
“I want to stress this is nowhere near where the fees need to get to,” said Lever.
However, he added it would allow the township to recognize some improvement to the fee for next year’s schedule (payments are made in six month intervals). Lever said he’s spoken to aggregate industry representatives who feel the implementation of the new fees is too quick.
