The Interlocal Cooperation Act (RCW 39.34.040) allows a local government to enter into interlocal agreements with other public agencies. By cooperatively sharing resources, everyone benefits!
Under RCW 39.34.040, Community Transit has executed interlocal agreements with other public agencies for various years.
As of June 7, 2006, this law was amended to permit a public agency to list interlocal agreements on its website instead of filing them with the county auditor's office. We have posted interlocal agreements the agency has entered into to comply with that law.
Please note the Snohomish County auditor's office does not have these agreements recorded.
