We provide services vital to your quality of life

As Tacoma Public Utilities adjusts rates, we understand that decisions we make will impact you. We take that responsibility seriously and look for ways to manage costs effectively, while still delivering the quality of service you expect by maintaining and improving our system.

We are preparing budgets for 2019 and 2020, a process that includes rate planning, system maintenance, and improvement projects for the coming two years.

If you're interested in learning more about how that process works and hearing about rate adjustments before they go into effect, there are several opportunities for members of the public to participate:

  • July 25, 3 p.m. - Tacoma Water Rate Design presentation at Tacoma Public Utilities
  • Sept. 12, 3 p.m. - Tacoma Rail and Tacoma Water Budget presentations at Tacoma Public Utilities
  • Sept. 26, 3 p.m. - Tacoma Power Budget presentation at Tacoma Public Utilities
