The results are in for the Wasaga Distribution Inc. telephone survey conducted by the Town of Wasaga Beach.
The survey revealed that the potential sale of Wasaga Distribution is the number one concern among ratepayers in the Town of Wasaga Beach. 91% support the Town maintaining sole ownership of the utility, 65% oppose merging Wasaga Distribution with another electrical utility, and 90% oppose selling 100% of Wasaga Distribution to a larger utility.

Wasaga Beach’s Mayor Brian Smith says he won’t vote to sell the town-owned utility, and he’s urging his fellow council members to do the same. Smith said he has all the information he needs from the public to make a decision.
Wasaga Beach Town Council has agreed to make a final decision at a special meeting at the Rec Plex on July 18th.
