Upon receiving a request for records, the City will respond within five business days by: 1) providing the record; 2) acknowledging receipt of the request and providing a reasonable estimate of the time the City will need to respond to the request; or 3) denying the records request. Additional time may be required to respond to a request because of the need to seek clarification, to locate and assemble the information requested, to notify third parties or agencies affected by the request or to determine whether any of the information requested is exempt and that a denial should be made as to all or part of the request (RCW 42.56.520).
Once the records have been assembled, you will be notified that the records are available for your review. Copies of records can be requested after the review is completed, or you may request to have copies made without conducting a review of the files.
50 copies are provided free of charge. A fee of 15 cents per page (or per side for two-sided copies) is charged for letter and legal size copies of documents after the initial 50 free copies. This pertains to electronic records, also. Copy charges for non-standard pages or other media can be found in the chart below, or in the Bremerton Municipal Code, Chapter 3.01 (Rates & Fees).
Full details of the City's Public Records Policy can be found in Bremerton Municipal Code, Chapter 1.06 and Public Records Act Rules. Please contact the Public Records Officer with any questions.
