Open Records Act


    A requester must be a legal resident of the United States or may be another agency.

    The open records officer may fulfill verbal, written or anonymous verbal or written requests for access to records. However only requesters who make written requests may pursue remedies for denial of access provided under the Act.

    A written request may be submitted in person, by mail, by e-mail or by facsimile.

    A written request must be addressed to the open records officer.

    A written request shall be in sufficient detail to allow the open records officer to determine which records are being sought and shall include the name and address to which a response shall be sent.

    A written request does not need to include any explanation of the reason for the request or the intended use of the information unless otherwise required by law.

    A requester may have access to a public record unless the intended use of the record is otherwise prohibited by law.
