Wasaga Beach Considering Future of Town-Owned Power Utility

Public Consultation Before Keeping, Merging, or Selling WDI

Wasaga Beach has a few options, but say they’ll get public input before going ahead, when it comes to the town’s power utility. A presentation for council last night, regarding the future of Wasaga Distribution Inc, the town-owned power distribution company. Three options are on the table here: keep and grow the company, merge it with others, or sell WDI outright. Mayor Brian Smith said after the presentation, thorough public consultation will occur before the town goes ahead with any of those options.  “It is our goal to ensure that the best interest of taxpayers, ratepayers and the broader community are at the forefront, while determining best options regarding the future delivery of electricity.”
