Body
PREAMBLE:
It is in the county's best interest to allow cities within King County to manage the entirety of roads that coincide with the city's boundaries. RCW 35A.21.210 provides the mechanism to allow cities with King County to adjust their boundaries to fully include roads on the cities' boundaries within the city.
