How can I request a public record?

COVID-19 Response:

Typically, we must respond to any public records request within five days. However, Gov. Jay Inslee’s emergency COVID-19 proclamation waives this requirement.  Therefore, during this pandemic, when we receive a public information request, we will attempt to respond within five days. However, since we are obeying the Governor’s order to stay home and stay safe, no one is physically at the Vera Water and Power office to search for written records. Those responses will be delayed until the emergency order has expired.

Any person wishing to inspect or copy public records of the district should make a request in writing on the district’s request form, or by letter, fax or email addressed to the public records officer and include the following information:

  • Name of requestor
  • Address of requestor
  • Other contact information, including telephone number and email address
  • Identification of the public records adequate for the public records officer or designee to locate the records
  • The date and time of day of the request

The Public Records Officer of the district is the General Manager, with the contact information below:
