HOW TO REQUEST PUBLIC RECORDS

 

Any request for information under FOIA is considered a public record and your request may be made public.

 

Calumet City maintains comprehensive forms, rules, and regulations related to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.  The forms are intended as a simple, efficient, and consistent manner for a requester to seek and receive access to public records.  The Rules and Regulations provide straightforward and understandable procedures and instructions for obtaining public records.

All requests to inspect, copy, or certify public records must be submitted in writing.  The City encourages requesters to use the convenient online option at the FOIA Public Records Center.   Typewritten forms are provided by the City and available at City Hall.  Typewritten forms may be mailed, submitted in person or faxed to 708-891-0472.  The City will review all written requests in any form.  The City will respond to each written request to inspect, copy, or certify public records in a manner consistent with the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.

Copies of public records will be provided after payment of a copying fee, if applicable, as provided in Section IV of the FOIA Rules.  If requested, copies of public records will be mailed after the City receives payment of the cost of postage and copying.

Requests and other communications regarding City records relating to a request to inspect, copy, or certify public records, all requests for copies of the FOIA Rules, and all requests for any other information relating to the City’s implementation of the Illinois Freedom of Information Act should be directed to:
