Judge Orders Release of Grays Harbor Audit of Planning Department

The (Aberdeen) Daily World and The (Montesano) Vidette requested records about an independent audit of the Grays Harbor Planning and Building Department. The audit was critical of the department's operations so the union representing department employees filed suit to block disclosure.

It didn't work. The judge ordered the records to be released.

And here are the records.

NOTE: Greg Overstreet of Allied Law Group represented The Daily World and The Vidette.
