Records requests will be reviewed, picked up, and paid for through the office of the city clerk.


Upon receipt of a public records request, the city clerk will acknowledge receipt of the request and forward the request to the appropriate department. The city clerk's office will provide an estimate of cost to the requestor and, upon approval of the cost, will retrieve requested records.

Depending on the volume of the request, a payment of 50% may be required up front prior to records being retrieved. The city clerk's office will notify the requestor when records are ready to be picked up.
