Seattle city officials, stung by a state audit that showed its compliance with the public records law was poor, are making some constructive changes to make things easier for requesters. Under the changes, citizens can now get some records without filing a formal request and they will no longer have to resubmit requests filed with the wrong agency. Also, the city will make as many records as possible available electronically, cutting copying costs. (6/9/08).
