Underground Utility Board Remains Without Budget


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas law requiring a public entity to run underground utility notifications remains in flux six years after its passage. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that a private-sector nonprofit called Kansas One Call has been responsible for running a call center and educating people about the need to call before digging since the 1980s. But a 2008 law required a public notification entity. After the Kansas Supreme Court determined that Kansas One Call isn't a public entity, the state created a new entity called the Kansas Underground Utility Notification Center to oversee the notification center. The Kansas Corporation Commission appointed Kansas One Call as the interim operator of the notification center so there wouldn't be any disruption in services. The eventual plan is to seek bids for running the notification center.
