CHANGES DUE TO GOVERNOR INSLEE’S PROCLAMATION & COVID-19 EMERGENCY

 

12-MAY-2020: CHANGES DUE TO GOVERNOR INSLEE’S PROCLAMATION & COVID-19 EMERGENCY

On May 12, 2020, Governor Jay Inslee issued Proclamation 20-28.3 in response to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

• The requirement that agencies respond to PRA requests within 5 business days is suspended only for requests not received electronically through May 31, 2020. Public records requests received electronically will receive an initial response within 5 business days. Records production in response to requests 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 until May 31, 2020 or the end of the COVID-19 emergency, whichever is sooner.

 

It is the County's duty to the public to maintain an open and transparent operation of local government. In conjunction with the "Public Record Act", RCW 42.56, each individual department is to maintain adequate records of any documents created or maintained under the department's name. In Island County there is no centralized public records department.
