POLICY & INFORMATION FOR PUBLIC RECORDS ACT REQUESTS

The City Clerk’s Office will respond to all requests as soon as possible, but not later than the 10-day period, or extensions thereof, as provided by Government Code Sections. In accordance with the Public Records Act, the City will provide only specific identifiable records that exist and have been retained in the ordinary course of business. The City will not create records that do not exist, research City records for particular types of information, transfer electronic information into new or different formats, or analyze information which may be contained within public records. The City will respond to requests for public records in accordance with the terms of the California Public Records Act as the Act now exists or may hereafter be amended, and nothing in this Policy is intended nor shall it be construed to conflict with the terms of the Public Records Act.
