On Thursday, June 14 and Tuesday, June 19, the City will be hosting two open houses for citizens to learn more about the potential acquisition of the SPU water system in Shoreline. This is an opportunity for residents to come and learn about the potential acquisition and ask questions. Members of the SPU Acquisition Steering Committee, comprised of Shoreline citizens, and City staff will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.
Over the past several months, the City has been conducting its due diligence process to see if the Council’s objective can be met. The Council’s stated objective is to acquire the system at a price that, when added to other costs to operate and maintain the system, would fall within a rate structure equal to or less than what SPU would forecast over a reasonable period of time. Much of the due diligence will be completed by the time of the open houses.
If you would like to learn more about the SPU acquisition and the due diligence process, visit the City’s webpage. For information about the open houses contact Management Analyst Eric Bratton at firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 801-2217.
