Washington County/West Bend have issues with open records requests

Curtsy to Boots and Sabers...

Three in 10 requests made under the state's public records law were not properly fulfilled, according to a statewide audit released Wednesday by open records advocates.

In 30 cases - nearly 10% - requests for simple records were denied or ignored, according to the audit by the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council and the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Journalism and Mass Communication.


In Washington County, the requester had to provide a name to get the jail booking log. Problems also were encountered in Washington County in getting school and town records, and the West Bend Police Department did not provide records regarding calls to a high school.
