PUBLIC HEARING re: Public Records Act Compliance Policy & Charges

A Public Hearing will be held on Monday, March 19, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. in the Commissioners’ Chambers, 1820 Jefferson Street, Port Townsend, Washington for the purpose of taking written and oral testimony regarding possible adoption of a Jefferson County Public Records Compliance Policy. This would include the possible adoption of a Resolution approving the policy and an Ordinance approving updated charges in the proposed policy to add to the Jefferson County Code Appendix Fee Schedules. The current Jefferson County Records Access Policy has been in place since 2006 when it was adopted in Resolution 39-06.  However, state legislation, effective July 23, 2017, has amended significant features of the Public Records Act, requiring Jefferson County to adopt new procedures as well as update some already existing procedures.

The public can view the complete text of the proposed Jefferson County Public Records Compliance Policy, along with the proposed Resolution and the proposed Ordinance by clicking on the links below or a copy can be obtained by calling 360-385-9100. The public may provide verbal and/or written testimony at the Public Hearing, and may also submit written testimony to the Jefferson County Commissioners, P.O. Box 1220, Port Townsend, WA 98368 or e-mail to jeffbocc@co.jefferson.wa.us, at any time up through the end of the public hearing.
