Freedom of Information Act Requests (FOIA)

What is FOIA?

The Freedom of Information Act provides the public access to a government agency’s records.

Requests to obtain copies or view materials should be submitted in writing, directed to:

Requests must be specific. For example, please list RFQ numbers, contract numbers or any other specific details for requested documents in the body of the email.

The response time for regular FOIA requests is 5 business days. Longer response times are provided by the Act for Commercial requests and Recurrent requests.

Sewer permits requests no longer require a FOIA request. For more information on how to request a sewer permit, click here.
