Each adopted ordinance receives at least two readings at an open public meeting. They are frequently subject to a public hearing as well. Once approved, the adopted ordinance is codified, if appropriate, in the Sammamish Municipal Code.
State law permits a local government to enter into interlocal agreements with other public agencies. This allows the cooperative sharing of resources that is mutually beneficial. In accordance, the City of Sammamish has executed interlocal agreements with other public agencies for various purposes over the years.
Effective 6/7/2006, RCW 39.34.040 was amended. This amendment allows a public agency to list interlocal agreements on its website instead of having to file the agreement with the county auditor’s office.
The interlocal agreements linked here comply with RCW 39.34.040. They may not have been recorded with the King County Recorder’s Office. (Other interlocal agreements can be requested by the Public Records Request process with the City Clerk’s Office.)
