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
