Available FOIA Documents

Some records are available for immediate inspection during operating hours of the Municipal Building, while others would take time to access. Copies need to be requested and every effort would be made to comply with the request within the legal time limits. Anything that would take longer would be explained in writing and provided to the requester. All information must be requested in writing, even those that are available for immediate inspection and the request should be as specific as possible.
Nothing except copies of records prepared for the requester may leave the Municipal Building.

Visit the Archive Center of this website to readily access city records. Please be advised, records will be added to the online Archive Center as city staff time allows.
