City Records

This page provides already accessible records, links to outside agencies records, and frequently requested records.

The information on this page does not constitute a complete index of public records available from the City.

Exemptions on Certain Records

The Public Records Act provides several types of documents, or information within documents, that are exempt from public inspection and copying. In addition, documents are exempt from disclosure if any “other statute” exempts or prohibits disclosure. The City will stamp the beginning page of each new exemption in the record and will also include an exemption log that also shows what pages have redactions and what exemption code was used. The explanation of the exemption code is in the pages following the log. 

The most current list of statutory exemptions and prohibitions from public disclosure adopted by the City is available at under the “Public Disclosure Exemptions”. 


Emails that have no redactions will be provided as a PST file. This format is used for outlook emails. There are several free PST viewer software programs that can be downloaded from the internet in order to view these emails without having an outlook account. Any emails that require redactions will be transferred to a PDF file. If a record has both non redacted and redacted responsive emails, there will be both a PST file for the non redacted emails and a PDF file for the redacted emails.


For more information, download the Administrative Policy & Procedure for Disclosure of Public Records.
