Public Records Requests

 

Records Available for Public Review

City records are available for public review and copies may be requested and obtained unless specifically exempted by state statute. To review records not on our website, please complete a public records request form (see below) so that we may schedule a time for you to come in to view the documents or to obtain copies.  Many records are now available online through the Laserfiche document repository.

More about Public Records Requests

In 1972, Washington voters adopted Initiative 276, which requires that most records maintained by state, county, and city governments be made available to members of the public for inspection and copying. The Public Disclosure statutes are primarily located in Chapter 42.56 of the Revised Code of Washington (RCW), and are sometimes referred to as the "Public Records Act" or "Sunshine Laws."
