COVID-19 UPDATE: Pursuant to RCW 38.52 and Camas Municipal Code Chapter 8.56, the Mayor of the City of Camas proclaimed a State of Civil Emergency on March 18, 2020, due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and establised orders and measures to protect public health and safety. In the interest of public health, the City is adhering to social-distancing directives, resulting in facility closures and the scaling back of staff to critical services only; pursuant to RCW 42.56.520, additional time is necessary to process requests and/or gather and review records, determine whether any records requested are exempt from disclosure, and to provide third-party notice.
Therefore, the City of Camas is allotting up to 30 days for staff to respond to/provide a time-estimate to records requests.
A response can be the following: 1) a clarification about the request; 2) An estimate on when responsive records will be delivered; or, 3) An explanation as to the fact the records are exemp from disclosure.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please call 360-834-6864 for more information.
