Public Records Policy

Public records are any documents that relate to the business or activity of the City.

Records must be requested from the Public Records Custodian of the City.  Requests in person must be done during regular business hours - 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., weekdays, excluding Saturday, Sunday and Holidays. 

Request must at least identify the records requested with sufficient clarity to allow the public office to identify, retrieve and review the records. 

Request may be in writing or verbal. 

Requestor’s identity or intended use of the information or documents requested need not be disclosed. 

Public records will be made available for inspection as promptly as possible. 

Copies of public records will be made available within a reasonable period of time. 

Copies made on paper are 5¢ (five cents) per page.  There is no charge if the total pages provided for the requestor is 9 (nine) pages or less per day. 

Copies will be made only by the Public Records Custodian or other authorized officer, employee or representative. 

The requestor may request that copies of public records be transmitted to him or her by U.S. Mail or any other means of transmission that is available and is conducive to transmitting the public records. 

The cost of transmission will be borne by the requestor and if payment is made by check, copies will not be made until the check has cleared. 

Any denial of public records requested in part or in whole will include an explanation, including legal authority for the denial.
