Property Taxes funding Southwest Suburban Sewer District? Not true…

Print This Post  Email This Post

Over the past couple of months, several Southwest Suburban Sewer District (SWSSD) customers have inquired about a statement they heard, or read about, from King County. 

During public community meetings and in informational handouts, King County has stated that an allocation of property taxes go to local special purpose districts, which includes wastewater districts.

This is an incorrect statement. 

Here at SWSSD, we provide sewer service for approximately 60,000 residents throughout Burien, Normandy Park, and White Center.  100% of the District funds come directly from your monthly sewer service rates.  Your sewer service rate is the 2nd lowest and half the average sewer rate in all of King County, and approximately 1/3 of what the City of Seattle customers pay.

A link to a King County sewer rates comparison spreadsheet can be found at SWSSD’s website by clicking on http://www.swssd.info/uploads/1/1/2/5/11251631/king_county_sewer_rates_2012.pdf

SWSSD’s Board of Commissioners and staff are committed to providing quality sewer service at the lowest rates possible.

    I’m happy with the service I get for the money. Now, as long as we don’t pay that Brett Fish guy! Nothings worse than a sue-er.
