KC Franchise Fee

On August 1, 2018, King County Superior Court Judge Samuel Chung issued an
oral ruling in Case No. 18-2-02238-0 SEA granting summary judgment to water,
sewer and electric utilities and ordering that King County cannot charge the
utilities rent for the use of county roads and rights-of-way. The
Association along with several other cooperative water associations and an
electric cooperative intervened in the lawsuit and are included in the
decision. A formal order reflecting the Court’s decision will be prepared
and presented to the Court within the next few weeks. It is not known
whether King County will appeal the ruling.
