Oregon Public Records Law grants each person the right to inspect the records of a public body (unless exempt for disclosure).  City staff will contact you within 72 hours of receiving this request. 


In most cases, there will be a fee charged for providing this service. Upon request, or if the charge will exceed $10.00, the City may make an estimate of the charges, and a deposit in that amount will be required before we process the request. Payment of the fee for meeting your request must be received prior to the requested materials being released.

Staff may handle routine requests where a specific document charge exists, other information will not be released with the City Recorder or City Manager's signature below.  More complex written requests, or requests that may involve statutory exemptions from disclosure shall be submitted to the City Attorney for response.
