Public Records Disclosure Information


On March 24, 2020, Governor Jay Inslee issued Proclamation 20-28 temporarily suspending certain provisions of the Public Records Act through midnight, April 23, 2020.

  • The requirement that agencies respond to PRA requests within 5 business days is suspended. Responses to requests for records may be delayed. Each County department and office will make a good faith effort to communicate with records requestors in a timely manner as staffing availability and workloads allow during the COVID-19 Emergency.

  • All in-person business pertaining to requests for records is suspended, including: making a public records request in person, inspecting records onsite and picking up records onsite. If you have previously scheduled an onsite visit, the department’s records officer will be contacting you with other options.

The Public Records Act (PRA) requires that all public records maintained by state and local agencies be made available to all members of the public, with very narrow statutory exemptions. Chapter 42.56 RCW provides the statutory framework for disclosure of public records.
