title

Approval of Fifth Amendment to Interlocal Cooperation Agreement Between King County and the City of Redmond for Maintenance of Redmond Watershed Trails

OVERVIEW STATEMENT:

recommendation

An Interlocal Cooperation Agreement between King County and the City of Redmond was executed in 1992 regarding the development of Redmond Watershed Trails. Section 5 of this agreement addresses King County's financial obligation to support the maintenance, operations, and administration of the trails and support system. Section 5 also defines the periodic review and renegotiation of the agreement every five years, and the conditions that would terminate King County's obligations.

                     Other Key Facts:

The original Interlocal Cooperation Agreement has been amended four times previously to address the years 2000 through 2004, 2005 through 2009, 2010 through 2014, and 2015 through 2019. The current agreement reflects an inflationary increase to accurately reflect maintenance costs and establishes yearly increases for the agreement period adjusted by the lesser of: (a) the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ published consumer price index for all urban consumers (CPI-U), Seattle-Tacoma-Bremerton Annual Average, all items, index base period 1982-1984 = 100, and starting from February 2019, without reference to seasonal adjustments, or (b) three (3%) percent. If the Bureau adopts a different base period for this index, then the parties shall use that base period.

 

 

OUTCOMES:

Approval of the amended agreement will extend the life of the Interlocal Agreement for another five (5) years, through 2024.

Time Constraints:

Approval of this amendment is essential in funding the maintenance and operations of the recreational trails and support system in the Redmond Watershed Preserve.

 

 

ANTICIPATED RESULT IF NOT APPROVED:

The Council could choose to modify this amendment and direct staff to renegotiate with King County and return with a new, amended agreement for Council's consideration at a later date. This action would most certainly delay the County payments to the City for the operations and administration of the Watershed Preserve trail and support system.
