How Do I...?

How do I file a Freed of Information (FOIA) request? You may send your request to the City Clerk by email, mail or by dropping the request off at City Hall.  You may provide your request in written format or use this form.  

What happens after I submit a FOIA request?  The Illinois Freed of Information Act requires agencies to respond within five business days of receipt of a request. A five-day extension is allowed with written notification to the requester. 

What are the costs for duplication?
