City of Kenmore to Hold Public Hearing on Proposed Franchise Agreement with Northshore Utility District
Feb. 10

The Kenmore City Council invites the public to provide comments on the proposed franchise agreement for water and sewer services with the Northshore Utility District at a public hearing on Monday, February 10, 7:30 PM at Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68th Ave NE.

The City of Kenmore does not currently own and operate water and sewer utilities and instead grants a franchise allowing Northshore Utility District (NUD) to provide water and sewer utilities to Kenmore residents and businesses. The City's current franchise agreement with NUD was adopted in 2003 and needs to be updated to clarify responsibilities among entities and reflect changes in state law. Read more...
