Requesting Records & Information

Public Records

The City Clerk is the City of DuPont's Records Officer. It is the role of this office to assure the City is in compliance with the Public Records Act. The City of DuPont provides access to public records under the provisions of the Washington State Public Records Act (RCW 42.56).

All records maintained by the City of DuPont are available for public inspection unless specifically exempted by law. You are entitled to access public records, under reasonable conditions, and to copies of those records upon paying the costs of making the copy. In most cases, you do not have to explain why you want the records. However, specific information may be necessary to process your request. We may require information necessary to establish if disclosure would violate certain provisions of law.

Requesting Public Records

The more precisely you can identify the record you seek, the more responsive we can be. The City of DuPont provides access to existing public records in its possession; however, the City is not required to collect information or organize data to create a record not existing at the time of the request.
