With the recommendations and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state and local health authorities, regarding social distancing and limitations on public gatherings and Governor Inslee's Proclamations and Stay At Home Orders to help slow the spread of COVID-19, Public Disclosure Requests can be submitted online (see below). Governor Inslee has temporarily waived the 5 day response time and the availability for the public to view in person or to make copies in person of any Public Disclosure Requests.

Court Public Disclosures

The City of Bonney Lake Municipal Court receives requests for a variety of records and information.

If you are unable to find what you are looking for, or you would like to request copies of records, please find the information below under the department tab that the records would be processed by.

Processing

If a disclosure request is received during normal business hours, the Court will provide a response by the 5th business day after receipt. If the request is received when Court offices are closed, the 5-business day response period will start on the next occurring business day. Within 5-business days of the receipt by the Court of the request for disclosure, the Public Records Officer for the Municipal Court or designee shall:

(1) Provide the record, or the portion of the record(s) subject to disclosure, after the payment of applicable fees; or

(2) Acknowledge the Court's receipt of the request, accompanied by an estimate of time necessary for further response; or

(3) Deny the request accompanied by an explanation of the basis of denial; or

(4) Request a deposit for the records requested along with an estimate of time necessary to complete the request; or

(5) Ask for clarification of the request for records.

The Court will work to expedite a response to your disclosure request. Requests will generally be handled in the order received. However, the Court may handle simple requests first based on our best estimate of how to most expeditiously handle the total number of current requests.

Fees for copies, scanning, postage, delivery, electronic records, and other miscellaneous fees for Bonney Lake are outlined in BLMLcR 1.1 and RCW 3.62.060

Fees for copies, scanning, postage, delivery, electronic records, and other miscellaneous fees for Sumner are outlined in Sumner Municipal Court's local rule 9.1 and RCW 3.62.060.

Deposit and Payment for Duplication

Payment of duplication and applicable postage fees shall be made prior to the disclosure of public records. The Public Records Officer may require the requester to deposit a sum equal to 10% of the estimated cost prior to duplication of the records. In the event that a deposit is required, the Court will notify the requester of the necessity of the deposit. If the actual duplication and deposit fees are less than the amount deposited by the requester, the Court will return the sum in excess of the actual amount to the requester.

Submit the Municipal Court Records Request form to the Bonney Lake Municipal Court to request a recorded transcript, court docket, or other court documents.
