How do I make a FOIA request?

All requests must include the name and address of the requestor and the request must be reasonably specific.  A telephone number and/or email address is not required, but is useful. The day after the FOIA Officer or County employee receives the request is considered the first day of the five working day response period.  The five day period does not include weekends or holidays. A request for records can be sent through the website via the online form, through the mail, or by email to the FOIA Officer.
