Citizen Access to Public Records

Citizens may inspect and have copies made of City public records pursuant to the Kentucky Open Records Act as provided in the Kentucky Revised Statutes.

As a citizen it is my responsibility to...

Submit your request in writing or complete a Public Records Inspection Application.  Forms may be obtained from the Office of City Clerk, selected departments or downloaded from the City website.  Completed forms should be filed with the Office of City Clerk or with the specific department having possession of the records being requested.  All requests for Police records must be submitted to the Police Department.

It is the responsibility of the city to...

Receive and process Open Records Requests according to the law.  The City must respond within three business days from the receipt of the request.  In most cases the records requested will be provided for inspection.   Copies will be provided for a fee per page.  If the request is for commercial purposes, costs will vary.  In other cases, within the three-day time frame, the City may indicate a need for additional time or deny some or part of the request.

If I am interested, who do I contact...

Office of City Clerk, City Hall, P.O. Box 430, 1001 College St., 393-3632 or individual City departments
