The cost of purchasing service from Eastsound Water is going up on January 1st.
The rate change applies to the initial cost of membership or the upgrade of a membership. Since 2016 the cost of new service has been $12,700 for a single family home. A year ago at the 2018 annual meeting, the Eastsound Water Board approved an increase to $14,000, with the provision that the change would go into affect Jan 1, 2020.
If you are considering a new development or an upgrade to your existing membership it might be prudent to consider applying for that membership before the Dec 17th Board meeting. The Dec Board meeting is the last chance to purchase a membership at the current rate.
