Another method would be by mailing, faxing or emailing a written request to the City Clerk specifying in particular the records requested to be disclosed and copied. All written requests should be addressed to the FOIA Officer at the address of the Clerk’s office. If you desire that any records be certified, you must indicate that in your request and specify which records must be certified.

                                         Costs of certifying a record will be $1.00.

             Records may be furnished without charge or at a reduced charge, as determined by the City, if the person requesting the documents states the specific purpose for the request and indicates that a waiver or reduction of the fees is in the public interest. Waiver or reduction of the fees is in the public interest if the principal purpose of the request is to access and disseminate information regarding the health, safety and welfare or the legal rights of the general public and is not for the principal purpose of personal or commercial benefit.
