Public Records Requests

The California Public Records Act (CPRA) provides for the fundamental right of the public to access public records. Requests for public records should be submitted to the Office of the Town Clerk.

Public Records can be requested in writing, via postal mail, e-mail (, fax, or through the online Request Tracker. Requests may also be made orally on the phone or in person.  However, to assist with making a focused request for identifiable records, it is best to put your request in writing. The Town's Enterprise Systems Catalog is available in PDF form.
