Finance Minister: time for “realistic” water rate

    0
    It’s time for a realistic price to be paid for a water supply in T&T.
    That’s the call from Finance Minister Colm Imbert, who said our WASA and T&TEC rates are the lowest in the hemisphere.
    Mr. Imbert says the rates are so low, they cannot offset the cost of producing water, and this creates a large burden for taxpayers to bear.
    The Minister though says though water rates will increase, Government will ensure it doesn’t create a large burden for those who are economically disadvantaged.
