The Eastsound Water Board has approved a change to the membership fee and new payment plan options.

The membership fee will increase from $12,700 to $14,000, effective Jan 1, 2020.

This is the first increase in the membership fee since 2016 and is being announced 9 months in advance so prospective developers, home builders, or members wishing to upgrade their memberships can make application prior to the fee change.

Eastsound Water has also expanded the “payment plan” options associated with the purchase or upgrade of membership. There are now 2, 4, and 6-year payment plans available. These plans can be found the 2019 Rate Schedule (link below)

Contact the General Manager to discuss the membership process. It is recommended that applications be submitted by mid-October 2019 so that they can be processed and presented to the Board prior to the end of the year.

Since 2004, the cost of membership has tracked closely to the cost of inflation.
