Kan. Admin. Regs. § 98-8-3 - Review of notice of intent to grant easement
(a) After the comment period specified in the notice of intent to grant easement has ended, the application, any comments or responses received, and the proposed project shall be reviewed by the director.
(b) No easement shall be granted until applicable program funding for the project has preliminary approval, if the project depends on a federal, state, or local program for funding.
(c) If, after review, the director determines that the application meets the statutory requirements for an easement in K.S.A. 82a-220 and amendments thereto, notice of the approval shall be sent to the cooperating landowner and the fees necessary for filing the easement shall be collected by the director.
(d) If, after review, the director determines that the application does not meet the statutory requirements for an easement or that the comments and responses received from those receiving the notice of intent to grant easement raise questions or issues that need to be resolved before an easement should be granted, a notice of cancellation of the intent to grant easement that provides the cooperating landowner with information about the concerns raised or problems to be addressed shall be issued by the director. The notice of cancellation shall indicate that the notice of intent to grant easement will be cancelled on a date certain, but not less than 15 business days after the date of the notice to cancel. The notice of cancellation shall be sent to all entities that received the notice of intent to grant easement.
(e) The cooperating landowner may, before the date indicated in the notice of cancellation, provide additional information or data or address concerns. If the director determines that the additional information provided adequately addresses concerns noted in the notice of cancellation, the easement may be granted after the director provides a summary of the information to all receiving notice under this regulation. An easement may be granted by the director if no person receiving notice files an objection within 10 days. Each objection shall be reviewed by the director to determine if the objection would change the director's intent to grant the easement.
