Hatters will soon have to pay for sewer back up, CCTV camera inspection, and root foaming calls from the City.

City of Medicine Hat crews provided these services at no charge for several years, but say that’s no longer feasible.

In addition to the new fee structure, requests for routine maintenance, or to inspect odor complaints inside of a residence have also been discontinued.

City officials say the changes are set to take effect on April 1.
