The King County Facilities Management Division (FMD), part of the Department of Executive Services (DES), intends to adopt administrative rules for the purpose of implementing the provisions of King County Code (KCC) Chapter 6.27.080, which requires that each franchise for electric, gas, water, or sewer utilities granted by King County include the requirement that the utility provide reasonable compensation to the County in return for the right to use the County road rights-of-way for the purpose of constructing, operating, maintaining, and repairing utility facilities and related appurtenances. Under authority granted by KCC Chapters 2.98 and 6.27.080.D., the purpose of these rules is to describe the processes for determining franchise compensation.
