Note: The Port is not authorized to provide public records consisting of a list of individuals for a commercial use. RCW 42.17.260(9)/ 42.56.070(9).

By policy, and as allowed by law, the Port does not maintain an index of records as it would be unduly burdensome to index all the Port’s records given the wide range of Port activities, limited staff availability and the excessive amount of time it would take to develop and maintain such an index.
