In 2020, the Bothell City Council adopted three ordinances to approve the utility rates for 2021.  Increases on water (6%), sewer (3.5%), and stormwater (5%) rates are to fund reliable, safe, and efficient utility operations and maintenance and to provide revenue for required utility improvements. Rates were increased due to increased costs of wholesale water, sewer treatment, cost of living, and interfund services to the City.
