Is the city flushing money away?

Despite concerns raised by the public, the Portage la Prairie City Council has decided to pursue a public-private partnership (P3) for the renovation and expansion of the municipal wastewater treatment facility.

Attend this free town hall meeting to learn about the impact P3s have on public water systems and what you can do to protect public water. Listen to the panel discussion then have your questions answered. Refreshments and snacks will be served.
