Our new Utility Billing system is “going live” on Jul. 29, 2019.
Yes, Utility Billing will provide more information about the new look of the bills prior to launching the new system.
Additional instructions will be provided prior to launching the new system. Check back for more information.
We are excited to offer more payment options, including online payments, once the new system is in place. Currently, the available forms of payment options are:
City of BothellPO Box 24927Seattle, WA 98124-0927
Not at this time. When you receive the blue mailer, along with the July 2019 bill, you will need to update your current account and/or customer number with the new Account-CID information provided to your banking institution for future payments.
The blue mailer will contain a new Account-CustomerID number. The outside of the mailer will say, "Sensitive information inside" and "Your action is required."Once you receive the blue mailer, you must follow the instructions included for all payment methods for City Water & Sewer bills. Customers who use automated banking and those who pay by mail will need to take action to ensure the City receives their payments by updating banking information to include the new Account-CustomerID number as well as our new payment address.
You will receive a blue mailer for each of your property addresses. These blue mailers will contain a unique account number for each property, and they will all share one CustomerID which identifies the party receiving the mailer.
Effective with the new system, rental property accounts will be billed to the property owner only.
Anyone may pay any City of Bothell Water & Sewer bill.
No. The tenant will continue to receive billing statements until the City transitions to the new billing system.
Nothing will change. We will continue to send your billing statements on to these designees once we transition to the new billing system.
If you are buying or selling a home, you will need to contact Utility Billing to provide the seller’s name, property address, forwarding address, closing date, and buyer’s name. The owner is responsible for water and sewer charges. If you purchase a property and the final bill is not paid at closing, it becomes the new owner's responsibility to pay the outstanding charge. Check with your escrow company to make sure they are paying the closing bill.
The property owner receives the bill for rental property accounts. Please contact Utility Billing, if you would like to set up a property management company or third party payer.
If you will be gone for an extended period of time, you may want to consider requesting a temporary stop service. There is a fee for turning off the service and for turning it back on. If you would like to temporarily stop service, email Utility Billing or call 425-806-6881.
As the homeowner, you are responsible for locating and repairing a water leak. If you have a leak repaired, it is important to complete a Leak Adjustment Request Form.
