Franchise fees are collected from electric, gas, telephone, and cable service providers operating within City limits. The City of Olathe collects a 5% franchise fee per agreements between the City of Olathe and utility providers.

Franchise fees are legally authorized by the Kansas State Legislature to:

  • Pay for the use of public right-of-way and property easement areas within the City
  • Offset City operating costs
  • Offset additional personal property taxes

The Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) regulates electric, gas, telephone and cable providers.
