Public Records Request

Overview
Public Records Request applies to all requests for documents made pursuant to provisions of the Public Records Act (PRA) found in Section 6250 et seq. of the California Government Code. The PRA requires disclosure of public records unless those records are exempt from disclosure or it is determined that the public interest in non-disclosure significantly outweighs the public interest in disclosure. The City Attorney will make the determination as to what records may be exempt from disclosure.
