Responding to Records Requests (RCW 42.56.520)
Within five (5) business days (excluding holidays) after receiving your request, we will:
· Provide the record(s); OR
· Acknowledge your request and give you a reasonable estimate of how long it will take to respond; OR
· Deny the request in writing, stating the reasons for the denial (this could also include a denial of part of your request and a granting of the remainder).
Once the records have been collected, we will notify you of any copying charges. Any records or portion of records that are exempt from disclosure will be withheld or redacted. We will specify the exemption that applies to anything withheld or redacted.
Depending upon the scope of a request, we may respond through a series of installments. Reference RCW 42.56.080.
In addition to records being made available as copies, you may elect to inspect a record at no charge. The Public Records Act request process applies whether the records request is for copies or inspection.
