Freedom of Access Act Requests

Requests for public records should be in writing. Requestors should specify, as clearly as possible, the records being sought. We will acknowledge receipt of your request within 5 business days of receiving it. At that time, we may ask you to clarify what you’re seeking or, we may deny your request. If we do not deny your request, then, within a reasonable time of receiving it, we will provide you an estimate of the time it will take to provide the records you’re seeking, as well as the cost of responding to the request.

Requests can be submitted by any one of the following methods:
