New Legislative Information Center Coming Soon

Welcome to Whatcom County Council's Legislative Information Center

Whatcom County will be transitioning to a new agenda management system. This will change how legislative meeting information is accessed, and provide greater accessibility to meeting information and supporting documents. There will be one link on the Council page main menu, called “Legislative Information Center,” that will guide you to a new meeting hub by that name. 

Access All Meeting Information

On the new site, all meeting information will be organized by tabs that present details with multiple filtering options.
  • Meeting Information (a calendar list format that gives you access to agendas, packets, media, files, and action taken on agenda items) 
  • Search Files (a search page to look for files by date, topic, or file type)
  • Meeting Bodies (filter searches for Council or a particular Committee and see the councilmembers that are on each meeting body) 

Access the Code and Charter

There will be a direct link to the Whatcom County Code and Charter from the Legislative Information Center and still from the main County Council page.

Find Archived Meeting Information

Older meeting information will be easily accessed through the Archives tab.

Search Ordinances, Resolutions, and Minutes Two Ways

Ordinances and Resolutions will be found and searchable for content in two places.
  • Going forward, these documents will be attached to the meeting details of the corresponding Council meeting date
  • You will also be able to access all ordinances, resolutions and minutes through a "Legislation and Minutes 1979-Present" tab 

Create Custom Searches and Personalized Alerts

The Legislative Information Center tabs will allow for multi-faceted filtering so you can quickly find what you are looking for. You can also create custom alerts based on search parameters such as meeting bodies, time periods, or topics.
