Public Records Request

The City Clerk’s Office handles Public Records Requests in compliance with California’s Public Records Act. Public records are open to inspection during regular City office hours, except for City holidays. While there are charges for the duplication of records (photocopies, CDs and DVDs) there is no charge to inspect or view records. Whenever possible the City will provide the records electronically when requested.
