Open Records FAQ
Will you answer my questions and do research for me? The Public Information Act does not require us to answer questions or perform research. Questions and requests for research should not be submitted as public information requests.
Will you charge me for information? There may be a charge for requests that require substantial personnel time or programming. We will notify you if your request will incur charges, and you can accept or decline the estimated charges before the work is performed.
Do I need to use special language to submit a request? No special language is required. Include enough description and detail about the documents you are requesting to enable us to accurately identify and locate the documents requested. We may contact you to clarify the type or amount of information requested.
