Forms


The City of Kenmore began administering Franchise Utility Right of Way Permits in 2011. King County, who had performed this function since the City's incorporation, is no longer issuing or inspecting the permits.

 

Application materials may be submitted electronically by email, by mail, or in-person at City Hall; electronic submittals are preferred. Submitting 11"x17" size plans is acceptable. If a larger size is needed, a request will be made on a case-by-case basis. Permits are typically issued within 7 business days of receiving the application.

 

Franchise Utility Right of Way Permits are invoiced quarterly. Fees are as follows:

  • Application Fee - Standard Permit: $202.00
  • Application Fee - Emergency Permit $262.00
  • Review Fee - Hourly: $101.00
  • Inspection Fee - Hourly: $101.00
  • Violation of Work Hours: $500.00
