Dear Mr. Mocek:

I am writing with regard to the public records request you submitted to the King County Department of Transportation (KCDOT) for the following information:

Invoices, work orders, installation plans and wiring diagrams for utility poles 1311440 and 1307407 dated January 1, 2010 or later.

I met with staff from King County Metro Transit’s Power and Facilities Section and was informed the utility poles listed in your request are owned and maintained by Seattle City Light. I subsequently ran a web search for the poles mentioned in your request and came across your website, noting that you were directed by Stacy Irwin at Seattle City Light to obtain records from WSDOT and King County Metro Transit. As a result of the information on your webpage, I have queried staff outside Metro Transit’s Power and Facilities Section (where records such as the ones you requested are typically kept) in hopes that responsive records can be identified somewhere else in KCDOT. It would be helpful if you could provide the type of background information available on your website when submitting future requests so that all pertinent information is available to staff to aid them with their search.

Since the focus of our search for responsive records has shifted, I now expect to have your request processed by November 6, 2015. Please contact me if you have any questions about this letter and thank you for your continued patience in this matter.

Sincerely,

Craig McMurdo
KCDOT Public Records Officer

Dear Mr. Mocek:

I am writing in response to the public records request you submitted to the King County Department of Transportation (KCDOT) for the following information:

Invoices, work orders, installation plans and wiring diagrams for utility poles 1311440 and 1307407 dated January 1, 2010 or later.

King County Metro Transit staff researched Pole # 1311440, located on the southwest side of 5th Avenue, southeast of Cherry Street in Seattle, and determined it was planted by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) in 1963 and was replaced with a steel pole in 2004. A Seattle City Light (SCL) streetlight is attached to this pole, along with a camera and traffic signal that are likely owned by the City of Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT). KCDOT has no ownership or affiliation with Pole # 13311440.

Pole # 1307407, which is located on the North side of South Jackson Street, 140 feet East of 23rd Avenue South in Seattle, is a steel pole that was planted by KCDOT Metro Transit in 1996 to replace a wood pole, which KCDOT does not have any records for. Records relating to the 1996 steel pole are attached. KCDOT Metro Transit uses Pole # 1307407 to secure trolley overhead wire support cables. Although KCDOT Metro Transit planted the 1996 pole, it is jointly used by other agencies. A SCL streetlight is attached to this pole, along with a camera we believe is operated by SDOT.

Withholding log:
No existing records identified as responsive to your request have been withheld or redacted.

Please contact me if you have any questions about this letter or the attached records. Your public records request is closed pending further communication from you with regard to this matter.

Sincerely,

Craig McMurdo
KCDOT Public Records Officer
