The Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) allows an individual to request existing public records such as laws, budgets, reports, etc. from the agency responsible for maintaining those records. To request records, individuals can complete the Application for Access to Records which may be downloaded and mailed, or faxed, to the Public Information Director or you can obtain a copy of this form at the 2nd floor reception desk at the Hazlett Building. Email requests will also be accepted. When you submit this form, FOIL allows five (5) business days to make the record available, deny access to the record with reason, or acknowledge receipt of your request and inform you of the time frame required to respond to your request.
NOTE: Birth and death certificates are not available through FOIL. Copies of birth and death certificates may be requested through the Office of Vital Records.
