2020 budget update:

On April 22, Everett City Council approved the adoption of 2020 emergency budget reductions, taken in response to COVID-19. These reductions were necessary to protect the City’s financial viability and ability to deliver core services. They affect nearly every department across the City. City staff and operation costs have also been reduced.

Effective July 1, 2019, the City of Everett will be implementing a 2.3% service fee on credit and debit card transactions. Credit and debit card processing fees represent a significant cost to the City and the implementation of this service fee will offset those costs. This fee implementation is one of the steps the City is taking to control the rising cost of doing business.
