Public Records Requests

If the records you are looking for are not available online, you may submit a request for a Public Record by downloading the Public Records Request Form (PDF) and submitting it to the City Clerk’s Office in person, via, mail, or by emailing Carolina Torres, Deputy City Clerk. You can also submit an electronic request by completing the online Public Records Request Form.

California law designates that the majority of the City’s records be available for public disclosure. These laws also stipulate certain types of records that are exempt from public disclosure, such as personnel records, records related to current litigation or current real estate negotiations, and such. California Government Code Section 7920.000 et. sq., Public Records Act, allows ten (10) days to respond to a request.

  • Records that are disclosed to the public may be viewed at City Hall at no charge.
  • The cost of copying records is charged to the requestor, based on the type of copy requested. If mailed, these costs are also paid by the requestor.
  • The City is not required by law to create a new record or list from an already existing request or provide public records exempt by express provisions of law from disclosure.
