Snohomish County to Make Changes to SWM Vault Fee Collection

MBAKS is working with Snohomish County on making changes to how it collects fees for inspecting and maintaining surface water management vaults. In many cases, the County is unable to collect fees due, so we’re working on options to make certain new homeowners know the annual fees are due.

Possible changes include adjusting language on a final plat map, including the charge on property tax statements, and more. We are looking to finalize the path forward in early 2021.
