            NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that a public hearing will be held before the Metropolitan King County Council, Room 1001, King County Courthouse, Seattle, Washington on the 12th day of June, 2017 at 1:30 PM,  to consider adoption of Proposed Ordinance 2017-0188.

 

            Proposed Ordinance 2017-0188 does the following:

 

  • Makes a determination of the sewer rate for the year 2018 that must be charged in order to meet the monetary requirements (administration, operating, and maintenance, repair and replacement costs) of the County's sewage disposal program.  The proposed sewer rate for 2018 is $44.22 per month per residential customer equivalent (RCE).  This is the same as the 2017 rate.

  • Sets the capacity charge for sewer connections occurring between and including January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018.  The capacity charge is the fee that is assessed against customers establishing new connections to ensure that those customers bear their equitable share of the cost of new capacity-related sewage facilities necessary to serve them.  The proposed capacity charge is $62.60 per month per RCE for fifteen years.  By comparison, the 2017 capacity charge is $60.80 per RCE per month for fifteen years.
