Sewer utility proposes increase to newcomer assessment fee6/13/2022

​Kitsap County Public Works Sewer Utility Division is proposing an increase to the fee for new connections to all Kitsap County owned sewer systems. The Newcomer’s Assessment set in 2021 is $6,481 per equivalent residential unit (ERU). The proposed fee for 2022 based on current data is $7,020 per ERU.

The newcomer fee is calculated on the current data of net present value of the sewer system, ten years of existing debt interest, growth portion of the six-year capital facilities plan, and the available capacity of the sewer system.

The resolution for the fee increase will be presented at a public hearing at 5:30 PM on Monday, June 27 at the regular business meeting of the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners.  The proposed fee would go into effect August 1, 2022.   

Attendance options are person or via Zoom: By phone, dial 1-253-215-8782; Webinar ID: 830 6506 2878. Start times are estimated and subject to change. Agenda items may be taken out of order.
