FOIA Request Form


FOIA Request

Freedom of Information Act Request

Agency disclosure of information focuses on the citizen's right to be informed about internal workings of their government. Official information that sheds light on an agency's performance of its statutory duties falls squarely within the statutory purpose of the Freedom of Information Act (F.O.I.A.). Release of information about private citizens that is accumulated in various governmental files that reveals little or nothing about the agency's own conduct is not the intent of FOIA and will generally be redacted. You will be charged the allowable fees under F.O.I.A. and payment will be required before information will be released.
