BYLAW 2097-17

Public Notice is hereby given that it is the intention of the Municipal Council of the Town of Stettler to pass Bylaw 2097-17 to amend Bylaw 2051-14 – ATCO Electric Franchise Agreement as follows:

  1. That Section 5 (a) – Calculation of Franchise Fee of the Electric Distribution System Franchise Agreement, a copy of which is annexed hereto as Schedule “A”, be amended from six point one percent (6.1%) to eleven point one percent (11.1%).

The Town of Stettler is proposing to amend Section 5(a) – Calculation of Franchise Fee as per the Electric Distribution System Franchise Agreement.  This Franchise Agreement currently requires ATCO Electric to pay a Franchise Fee to the Town of Stettler of 6.1% based on ATCO’s revenues for the delivery of power to customers within the Town of Stettler.  The proposed amendment to the Agreement would be to increase the Franchise Fee to 11.1% effective January 1, 2018.   Franchise Fees are recovered as part of a utility delivery charge and are required to be billed as a separate charge on all electric billings. The Franchise Fee, which is charged to ATCO Electric, is for use of Municipal Lands for its power lines and other related infrastructure.    The average residential increase has been estimated at $5.25 per month.

A copy of Bylaw 2097-17 may be viewed at the Town Office, 5031 – 50 Street during regular hours of business.

Residents of the Town of Stettler have until 4:30 p.m. on November 3, 2017 to make their concerns known in writing to the Town.   Please contact Greg Switenky, CAO at:
