hanging-files-1920437_1920Public Information Requests 

Due to the public health threat posed by COVID-19, the City’s physical offices remain closed to the public with many City employees working remotely or directly involved in responding to the public health disaster.  Responses to public information requests may be delayed due to limited access to certain records.

According to guidance issued by the Office of the Attorney General regarding COVID-19, if a governmental body has closed its physical offices for purposes of a public health or epidemic response, or if a governmental body is unable to access its records on a calendar day, then such day is not considered a business day for open records purposes, even if staff continues to work remotely or staff is present but involved directly in the public health or epidemic response. If a public information request seeks records that are inaccessible due to the physical closure of an office or limited staffing, the department will notify the requestor that a specific response may be delayed.  See Calculation of Business Days and COVID-19.

The City Secretary’s office is committed to providing access to public information and appreciates your understanding and patience during this unprecedented time.
