Public Records

Records of the City's public bodies, including the City Council, trusts, commisssions, committees, advisory groups, task forces, study groups and departments will be open for inspection and copying during regular business hours.

The City Clerk is responsible for maintaining the City's official records, including City Council items, Council minutes, City ordinances, contracts, claims, agendas, budgets and plans.

Many of these records are already available on this web site.

Other records are available through the City Clerk's Office at City Hall, 200 N. Walker.

Records obtained through the web site are for informal reference only. Because the possibility exists for these records to be altered after download, the City can make no guarantee as to their accuracy. If you need certified copies of records, you must buy them directly from the City Clerk's office.
