Access to Public Information 

The California Public Records Act was created to guarantee the access of information concerning the conduct of the people's business, a fundamental right of every person in this state. The public has the right to inspect and/or obtain a copy of a public record.

Availability of Public Information

Public records are open for inspection at all times during the regular business hours of City Hall. Obvious record requests are ordinarily available for inspection on demand or within a short period of time, unless documents are archived and/or stored in another department. The law allows 10 days to respond to a request for public records, unless there are unusual circumstances surrounding the production of a request, which may extend it an additional 14 days.
