AGLO 1977 NO. 20 > May 3 1977

(1) A proposition for financing a proposed park and recreation district under chapter 36.69 RCW may not be placed on the ballot at the same time as an election held on the question of formation of such a district.

(2) The formation of a park and recreation district under chapter 36.69 RCW is not subject to the jurisdiction of a county boundary review board under chapter 36.93 RCW.

(3) Formation of a park and recreation district, by itself, would not affect the administration of preexisting county parks.

AGO 1991 NO. 28 > Sep 16 1991

RCW 70.116.020 establishes the procedure for adopting coordinated water system plans in areas designated as critical water supply service areas.  RCW 36.93.090(5) provides that a boundary review board may review extension of water service by a city or town outside existing corporate boundaries.  A boundary review board does not have authority under RCW 36.93.050(5) to review extension of water service beyond corporate city or town limits if it is consistent with the coordinated water system plan adopted pursuant to RCW 70.116.020.

AGLO 1976 NO. 56 > Sep 15 1976

In the event of a proposal to disincorporate a city or town under chapter 35.07 RCW, there will be sufficient compliance with RCW 36.93.090 if the initiators of a petition for disincorporation file their notice of intent with the boundary review board having jurisdiction at the same time as they formally file the petition itself with the city or town council involved.
