Section 12.09.130 Facilities for City Use
  1. The administering officer may require that a service provider that is constructing, relocating, or placing ducts or conduits in public rights-of-way provide the City with additional duct or conduit and related structures necessary to access the conduit, provided that:
    1. the City enters into a contract with the service provider consistent with RCW 80.36.150. The contract rates to be charged should recover the incremental costs of the service provider. If the City makes the additional duct or conduit and related access structures available to any other entity for the purposes of providing telecommunications or cable television service for hire, sale, or resale to the general public, the rates to be charged, as set forth in the contract with the entity that constructed the conduit or duct, shall recover at least the fully allocated costs of the service provider. The service provider shall state both contract rates in the contract. The administering officer shall inform the service provider of the use, and any change in use, of the requested duct or conduit and related access structures to determine the applicable rate to be paid by the City;
    1. except as otherwise agreed by the service provider and the City, the City agrees that the requested additional duct or conduit space and related access structures will not be used by the City to provide telecommunications or cable television service for hire, sale, or resale to the general public;
    1. the City shall not require that the additional duct or conduit space be connected to the access structures and vaults of the service provider;
    1. the value of the additional duct or conduit requested by the City shall not be considered a public works construction contract;
    1. this section shall not affect the provision of an institutional network by a cable television provider under federal law. Additional requirements may apply as determined by the City in other permitted areas, outside the right-of-way. (See RCW 35.99.070.)
  1. Except where preempted by state or federal law, the City reserves the right to require provision of facilities for City use or impose other conditions on users of the right-of-way or other permitted areas.
