Written policy.

In order to implement the requirements of this chapter, the county legislative authority shall develop and by resolution or ordinance adopt written policies, within the limits of existing state law, that cover any matters relating to county road department administration, maintenance, and construction as they may see fit. At a minimum, the following written policies must be adopted by the legislative authority:
(1) Organization: A policy designating the interrelationships of all positions involved in the administration, operation, maintenance, and construction of the county road system, including the legislative/executive authority. Said policy shall include a chart or pictorial representation of the interrelationships and must clearly show the chain of command throughout the entire organization. It is recommended, but not required, the positions be represented by title or position number rather than by employee name to reduce the frequency of revision, adoption, and required submission to CRAB.
(2) Complaint handling: A policy establishing the method by which complaints from the general public and others will be received, assigned for review, response and any corrective action, and follow-up communication deemed appropriate.
(3) Work for others: A policy regarding approval of work for other public agencies and county departments within the requirements of RCW 35.77.020, 36.75.205, and chapter 39.34 RCW. The policy shall include, but is not limited to, the following:
(a) Statement of intent indicating whether the legislative authority will accept requests for work from other public agencies or other county departments;
(b) Statement indicating procedures to be followed in processing such requests in accordance with applicable statutes; and
(c) Statement indicating any delegation of authority in processing such requests.
(4) County road standards: The county engineer shall propose and, the legislative authority shall adopt, and amend as needed, standards for all county roads per chapter 36.86 RCW, and shall include:
(a) Design standards, see WSDOT local agency guidelines chapter 42.
(b) Construction specifications.
(c) Permitting work within the county road right-of-way.
(5) Survey monument preservation: A policy regarding preservation, maintenance, and restoration of survey monuments within the county road right-of-way.
