Proclamation 20-28
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.

Records must be requested from the Department that holds the record.

The Island County  Public Records Disclosure Contact Sheet  identifies records held by each department in Island County and the corresponding Records Officer for that  particular record type.  The department that holds the record is the only department that can ensure you receive the latest version of that record.

Each Department has their own records process, please contact them directly.
