Statement on Everett's 2023-2024 rate amendment

Utility rates pay for the utility service, which includes drinking water delivered to taps and sewer and stormwater being removed from property and treated, as well as the ongoing work to maintain and improve the systems that make service possible, like pipes, tanks, pumps and treatment plants. In response to historic inflation on the cost of maintaining the Utility’s systems, Everett’s City Council passed an amendment to the 2021-24 rate ordinance on Nov. 30, 2022, that will allow the Utility to maintain the most critical infrastructure with as minimal increase to the rates as possible. 

More information about the rate amendment is available.
