Open Records Request

 

The Georgia Open Records Act establishes the right to inspect or receive public records, excluding those records that are specifically exempted by court order or law.  To inspect or receive records, please complete the online form.  Please be specific in your request.

 

After receiving your request the City of Jefferson will respond to the request within three (3) business days if there are records responsive to your request.  The records requested pursuant to release (O.C.G.A. 50-18-71).

 

The response will be provided in written format and will be sent via email when possible.  Some records are not readily accessible.  In this instance, a timeline will be provided as to when the records will be available. 

 

If the Open Records Request requires an extensive search, you may be subject to an hourly rate of the lowest paid full-time employee.  The cost shall include the cost to search, retrieve, copy, redact, and supervise inspection of the requested documents.  There is no charge for the first 15 minutes.
