WA Local, Regional Govts. – Agendas, Documents

by Matt Rosenberg September 4th, 2012

Open meetings laws and public records laws are a bulwark of our democracy, to be widely promoted and firmly upheld. Yet the bar is rising still higher for government transparency as many elected bodies go beyond mere compliance with these legal requirements — by voluntarily providing better public access to their business, online. A key indicator for local and regional elected bodies is ease of online access to meeting agenda packet individual items, prior to meeting times. Following and grouped by county, are links to meeting agenda pages, or where none are available, meeting minutes pages or board roster pages for city and town councils in Washington state, plus school boards, county boards, public hospital boards, public utility districts and local/regional transit boards. Here we cover areas outside Central Puget Sound (King, Snohomish and Pierce counties), which have already been indexed in guides linked to at the end of this post.

This directory’s purpose is to promote wider access to the business of government, and particularly to agenda-specific original source documents posted online. Reporters, bloggers and other information providers can use these government source materials in their own online published work to enhance their own accuracy and accountability, and to better advance rational and richer discourse about current public policy matters.

We assign the following code for each government body included below:

  • (1) = (Best Practice) online agenda for each meeting has individual links to supporting documentation for individual agenda items (i.e. reports, memos, spreadsheets, ordinances)
  • (2) = agenda page has link to entire agenda packet for each meeting
  • (3) = online agenda provided for each meeting, but no link to agenda packet or other documentation for business items
  • (4) = there is no online agenda provided for official current meetings (minutes may or may not be provided)
  • (5) = No web site (although we may have provided a link to basic contact information, if available)
  • (Continued…..agenda page and document links for local, regional govts. in all WA counties)
