The City of Mount Vernon recently completed a rate study to update rates to provide sufficient revenue to operate and maintain the City's wastewater system. On March 13th the results of the Rate and Connection Fee study were presented to City Council. Since that meeting, City staff has recommended revising the proposed rate adjustment from a 3.8% annual increase to a 2.5% increase effective January 1, 2020, and then an annual inflationary level adjustment based on an amount up to the CPI but no less than o% per each year after.
If you wish to comment on this matter, you may provide verbal or written comment at the public hearing at 7:00 P.M. on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at the Mount Vernon Police and Court Campus, 1805 Continental Place, Mount Vernon, WA.
