Rate Increase

The Stanwood City Council is dedicated to bringing our residents and business owner’s high quality water, sewer, and drainage services. Last year the council adopted rate increases to ensure continued investment in the utility assets owned by tax payers. Even with the rate increase Stanwood continues to offer its utilities at some of the lowest rates in the area.
