Exempt from Disclosure

The Public Records Act and other statutes, list types of documents (RCW 42.56) from public inspection and copying. City of Edgewood will NOT disclose lists of individuals for commercial purposes. If only a portion of a record is exempt  from disclosure, the Public Records Officer or designee will redact the exempt portions before providing the document.


Special Considerations

If a requestor has not reviewed or claimed records within 30 days of notice that records are available or fails to make payment, the Public Records Officer may close the request. If requested records contain information that may affect rights of others, before providing the records, the Public Records Officer or designee may give notice and allow time for action by the other parties. After a request has been filled, If the Public Records Officer becomes aware of additional documents existing at the time of the request, these will be provided to the requestor on an expedited basis.
