Money too tight for toilet rebate
The Comox Valley Regional District is ending its toilet rebate program in Black Creek - Oyster Bay (BCOB).
The BCOB Water Committee made the recommendation, saying money is tight and every $75 cheque counts.
"There has been a lot of capital expenditures in the Black Creek - Oyster Bay water system and the budget is under some pressue, so this is a cost-cutting measure," explained Marc Rutten from the CVRD. "We recognize the benefit of low-flow toilets but we also have to work within a tight budget for that service."
The program has been offered on a first-come, first-serve basis while funds were available.
Owners have been eligible for a $75 rebate for installing high-efficiency (4.8 litre flush) or dual flush (usually three and six litre flush) CSA (Canadian Standards Association) approved toilets. Toilets rebates were limited at two per installation address.
"There's only until the end of the month when you can purchase the low-flow toilets, then we will process the claims until May 31st, but you have to buy the toilet before March 30th," said Rutten.
