Public Records

Making a Public Records Request

According to Florida state law, all state, county and municipal non-exempt records are open for personal inspection and copying by any person.

If the nature or volume of the public records request to be inspected or copied requires extensive use of information technology resources or extensive clerical or personnel assistance to fulfill, the County may charge the requestor the associated cost in addition to the actual cost of any duplication.

In an extensive use situation, you may be asked to pay a portion of the estimated costs prior to the request being filled and the remainder of the cost shall be due upon the records being made available.
