Such agreements will take into consideration the mileage and/or number of facilities in place by the Non-Communications Utility, the amount of current and anticipated Permit work within the Public Rights-of-Way, and the estimated costs to the Department of the Non-Communications Utility's operations. Such agreement shall provide for annual adjustments of the fee amount.

Such agreements will remain in full force and effect if desired by the Non-Communications Utility and the Department or may be renegotiated.
