FOIA – Freedom of Information Act


The City has a new online service for all Freedom of Information Act requests.  Using the system above, you’ll create an account, file your FOIA request and have access to its status online.  The user-friendly system will assist city departments in receiving and responding to FOIA requests in a timely manner, as well as providing staff with consistent documentation as to each FOIA request filed.

If you find that it does not meet your needs, you can fall back to using one of the standard paper FOIA methods mentioned below.
