Public Records

A valid Public Records Request is a request for a specific and identifiable public record. A request for general information is not a valid Public Records Request. Information such as subject matter, dates, location and physical address, parcel number, persons/issues involved, or account numbers will help staff locate records responsive to your request.
Certain information is exempt from disclosure; refer to the Public Records Act, RCW 42.56, for information on state law regarding public records and certain records which are exempt from public disclosure.

Please complete our Online Public Records Request Form to submit your records request.
