South Cove, Greenwood Point eye Issaquah water
April 8, 2014
Issaquah may soon provide water and sewer service to the South Cove and Greenwood Point neighborhoods.
Annexed into the city in 2006, the areas continued to receive utility service from Bellevue. Issaquah performed a study in 2013 and found the city could offer a lower combined water and sewer utility bill for the average customer. The city looks to take over services to the area from Bellevue.
Both cities must next sign an agreement to negotiate a transition strategy. Bellevue has approved this agreement and the Issaquah City Council was scheduled to vote on the issue during its April 7 meeting. The decision was unavailable at press time.
If the switch occurs, the major differences for the average customer will be receiving a bill from Issaquah, instead of Bellevue, and paying a lower cost for the services.
