Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) is in the process of updating its Strategic Business Plan (SBP), the roadmap that guides their investments and service levels. Additionally, this document, which is updated every three years, is the guide for the utility’s rate path. The first SBP, passed in 2014 and linked here, outlined a 4.6% average annual increase which is reflected in the core services provided by SPU: drinking water, drainage, sewer, and garbage and recycling.
During the development of the original SBP, customers had an opportunity to provide feedback at focus groups, public meetings, and via online surveys. They are now asking for your help to update the existing plan, which will affect your rates and your SPU bill. Please consider attending a community meeting and sharing your thoughts and experiences with SPU.
