The City of Everett says it has come up with a way to make it easier to request public records. Here’s the info.

The City of Everett has introduced a new online records request portal, hosted by GovQA, to make the process easier and more accessible for the public and to improve efficiency as the number of requests continues to increase.

GovQA’s web-based public records request management system allows requesters to set up a personal account through which they may submit, track and receive requests.

“We are committed to being transparent with our community members and it’s our goal to make the records request process accessible and easy to use,” said Sharon Fuller, City clerk. “This tool will improve the process for staff and requesters.”
