Governor Inslee has issued Proclamation 20-23, pertaining to Utility Ratepayer Assistance and Preservation of Essential Services. City of Bothell is committed to keeping our customers connected to essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic emergency. If you are experiencing hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for support, including long-term payment arrangements. If you are having difficulties making your payment, please call (425) 806-6881 and press 2 to discuss a payment arrangement plan. This Proclamation does not relieve customers from the obligation to pay for utility services.
