Open Records Request

Due to the current national and state emergencies related to the COVID-19 epidemic and the need to practice social distancing, we do not currently have the ability to process Open Records Requests as quickly as we would normally be able to. Some staff may not be working onsite at this time and may not have immediate access to records that you may request. We will make every effort to respond to all requests as quickly as possible while also doing everything we can to protect the health and safety of our staff and the public. 

To expedite your Open Records Request please submit it online here rather than sending it via fax or regular mail. If you have any questions, please contact the appropriate Open Records Officer for your request (as listed below), and we thank you in advance for your patience.

To file an open records request:

  1. Find the Appropriate Department/Entity for the Request
  2. Submit an Online Form or Email Request to the Specified Open Records Officer
