Rcw Interagency Agreement

RCW 39.34 allows a local government to enter into inter-local agreements with other public sector organizations to share resources together for mutual benefit. In accordance with RCW 39.34, the City of Kirkland has, over the years, entered into inter-local agreements with other public bodies for a variety of purposes. Some local governments have entered into agreements or have adopted policy measures in which they intend to establish opportunities for joint coordination and action on issues of common interest with neighbouring jurisdictions. See examples of agreements and policies below: See the MRSC web pages below for sample agreements in specific areas. Although there is no penalty for failure to file or post agreements, a decision of the Court of Appeal, plaggemeier State (1999) considered that an agreement was not valid if it had not been filed or reserved as requested by RCW 39.34.040. Plaggemeier was decided after an earlier version of RCW 39.34.040, which required the submission of an interlocal agreement with the district commissioner and the secretary of state. However, these statutes have been amended twice and now require only the presentation of the agreement to the county auditor or the registration on the Agency`s website. Plaggemeir is also important with the modification of the legal language, as it indicates that an interlocal agreement could be invalidated by a court if it is not properly filed or mentioned. All inter-local agreements under Ch. 39.34 RCW must be submitted either to the District Reviewer or on the website of a public body or other electronically searchable public source (RCW 39.34.040). This page provides an overview of inter-local cooperation for local governments in Washington State, including examples of inter-local agreements.

Effective June 7, 2006, RCW 39.34.040 was amended to allow a public body to list inter-local agreements on its website instead of submitting the agreement to the district review body. The Washington Interlocal Cooperation Act, Ch. 39.34 RCW, authorizes public bodies to enter into contracts with other public bodies for interlocal agreements that allow cooperation between agencies to conduct government-led activities and provide public services. The law also allows the creation of non-profit businesses to achieve these goals. The Joint Municipal Utility Services Act (J. 39.106 RCW), passed by Parliament in 2011, created a new type of intergovernmental society to improve the ability of municipal utilities to plan, fund, operate and deliver public services. By law, local authorities can enter into joint agreements on municipal utility services for the formation of independent municipal enterprises providing one or all of the services provided by their participating members, including water, piping, rainwater and flood protection services. The inter-local agreements listed below are published here to match RCW 39.34.040 and have not been registered with the King County Auditor`s Office (original inter-local agreements must be filed with Kirkland City Clerk and may be accessed by a public disclosure request).)
