With certain exceptions, records of the City are public records to which the public is entitled access. Pursuant to the Public Records Act (California Government Code Section 6250, et seq.), a person may request to review and/or receive a copy of any public record. The City Clerk’s Office is responsible for receiving and responding to requests for public records.
The City will provide the requested documents within 10 days or advise you, in writing, of any exemption from disclosure or delay in providing the information and when it will be made available. Requests that are not exempt from disclosure that require research, retrieval, and reproduction will be provided at the earliest date possible.
There is no charge to review public records. There are fees associated with obtaining copies of records. The fees are established by Resolution and vary depending upon the type of record and the method in which the record is provided.
