Update to Public Records Requests Under Governor's Proclamation 20-28

Per Governor Inslee's Proclamation 20-28 (and its extensions), effective March 24, 2020, all public agencies must still respond to Public Records Act (RCW 42.56) requests during the COVID-19 outbreak.

However:

  • Proclamation 20-28 temporarily suspends Public Records Act (PRA) language requiring agencies to provide an ability for the public to conduct PRA business at an agency office, in-person, such as in-person inspection of records or in-person submission of PRA requests;
  • Proclamation 20-28 also temporarily suspends the PRA requirement that agency offices must be open for public inspection and copying of public records for a minimum of 30 hours per week. Agencies must still have their hours posted on their websites (Walla Walla County office hours are available here, on office websites, or by calling the office you wish to contact); and
  • Proclamation 20-28 also temporarily suspends the PRA requirement that agencies respond to PRA requests submitted, other than electronically, by within five (5) business days.

 Walla Walla County is committed to responding to and fulfilling public records requests in a timely and efficient manner.
