Island County government is organized into separate departments and offices of independently elected officials. Each department and office is a “local agency” responsible for its own records under the definition in RCW 42.17A.005(2). There is no central office with access and responsibility to maintain and control all records. You can make any request you have for public records by writing to the specific office’s public records officer. The request should identify the particular record desired with enough specificity so it can be located. The Island County General Services Administration has specific public record request forms available.
Copies of records shall be made at the costs indicated in Resolution No. C-33-96.
By Resolution C-01-95, the Board of County Commissioners and the other independently elected county officials determined that an index of records would not be required as allowed by RCW 42.17.260(4).
Substantive and procedural ordinances and resolutions of a permanent nature adopted by the Board of County Commissioners and Board of Health are compiled in the official Island County Code available for inspection and copying by contacting the Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners
Island County General Services Administration records request forms are available online (click here) and in person at the Island County General Services Administration office.
