Requesting Public Records
Oregon Public Records Law grants each person the right to inspect the records of a
public body (unless exempt from disclosure). City staff will contact you within
5 business days of receiving your request. Click here to view the City
of Tigard Records Policy.|
All records request for which the estimate exceeds $50, will
require a payment of the estimated charges in advance. A credit card
authorization form must be filled out and
faxed before the request will be started.
The City of Tigard's Public Records Request Form is provided to the public to
assist in obtaining copies of any non-exempt City record or to inspect City records.
Upon completing the Public Records Request Form, it is submitted to the City's
Records staff for processing. Services such as photocopying and microprints
are provided at the rate contained in the Public
Records Request Form
and in the Public Access to City of Tigard's Records policy.
Public records requests which involve more than one half-hour of staff time for
identification and location of the requested records will include a charge
for staff time. Charges for providing records may be reduced or waived if it
is determined that the waiver or reduction is in the public interest because
making the record available primarily benefits the general public. To have a
request for a fee waiver or reduction considered, please fill out the
Request for Fee Waivers or Reductions form
and submit the form to City Records
with your records request. Records Staff will refer the request to the
appropriate Department for review.
The City will provide a response to public records requests within a
reasonable time after receiving the response. If the request is limited
in scope and does not raise exemption issues, the City will endeavor to
provide access to or a copy of the requested documents within five working
days. In all cases, the City will endeavor to provide a status report within
one week of receiving the request. The status report should normally
provide an estimate of when a decision may be made or when the records
may be available. Inspection of public records shall be conducted and
all copies of public records shall be produced during the regular
business hours of the City of Tigard.
