Waiv­ing ex­cess wa­ter bal­ance?

The Daily Examiner - - NEWS -

IT IS pro­posed that Clarence Val­ley Council waive the out­stand­ing ex­cess wa­ter bal­ance of $3879.40 for Grafton res­i­dent Reg McLen­nan.

Mr McLen­nan said he be­lieves he was de­nied the op­por­tu­nity to present his case in per­son as he was told at the CVC counter that he would be no­ti­fied when his is­sue was com­ing be­fore the council.

How­ever, the next time he heard from the council was when they con­tacted him to in­form him that council would only grant him the $859.50 al­lowance in ac­cor­dance with the Con­cealed Wa­ter Leak Al­lowance Pol­icy.

After the council re­placed his wa­ter meter when Mr McLen­nan said he didn’t think it needed to be done, they came back two weeks later to check the meter and said it looked like there was a leak some­where or the new meter was faulty be­cause of the ex­or­bi­tant wa­ter use over the pe­riod.

This is­sue will be tabled in the Cor­po­rate, Gov­er­nance and Works meet­ing.
