Clackamas County and Milwaukie have reached a tentative agreement on a new 25-year sewer contract.

An agreement in 2010 set the rates that Milwaukie must pay the county through this June, from August 2009, when the county terminated the city’s contract. Unlike other cities and areas that are members of Clackamas County Service District No. 1, Milwaukie is a wholesale customer, and that arrangement will remain under the latest tentative deal.
Tensions have eased over the past couple years to the point that a long-term deal was possible, and leaders had even been talking about Milwaukie annexing into the county’s service district. This year’s agreement would set Milwaukie’s rate equal with the county wholesale rate, and although the agreement does not encourage or discourage the city from annexing into the district, the agreement will terminate if the city opts to annex.
