BBWARM Advisory Committee Meeting

The BBWARM District service charge has remained unchanged since its inception in 2009. The rates are based on the density of impervious surface area on a property, such as pavement, rooftops, driveways, and parking areas. Due to the long list of stormwater improvement projects needed in Birch Bay and rising construction costs, it has become clear that a rate study, and likely a service charge increase, is warranted. In August 2023, the BBWARM advisory committee and county staff hired FCS Group, a public sector financial consultant, to conduct a rate study and funding analysis. The third pubic meeting, in which FCS Group will present rate design alternatives, is scheduled for Wednesday, May 8 from 6-8pm at the Birch Bay Village Clubhouse (8181 Cowichan Rd, Blaine, WA 98230). A remote Zoom meeting option is also available. The community is welcome to attend and provide comments and feedback. A final rate structure recommendation will likely be presented to Whatcom County Council on June 18, at which point there will be a public hearing. If approved, the new rates will go into effect in 2025.
