The City of Federal Way is committed to transparency and openness in our operations. To provide transparency to everyone we serve, the City of Federal Way is working to provide better access to public records. 

Many records are available on our website. To assist you, we've collected the list below of commonly requested records types with links to available records online. You may be interested in browsing the city's Electronic Records Library

Please note that some records are not automatically posted online for many reasons, including lack of widespread interest, large size of records, or the fact that records contain confidential information. 

If you are unable to find the record you are seeking online, you can submit a public records for them request via our Online Records Request Portal. Once received staff will process your request by determining if responsive records exist, reviewing them for exemptions, and producing them to you.
