Some records will require time to locate and to make the copies requested, but will normally be available during normal business hours and within seven (7) business days

If any document or copy which has been requested is not a public record or cannot be provided within the seven (7) business days, you will be provided with a response with that information within the seven (7) business days.

Some records requested have specific fees or other response times established by statute. There is no fee involved in simply inspecting a document during normal business hours. You will be required to call in advance to set up a time and date.
