Request for Public Record

Under​ Oregon’s Public Records Law (ORS 192.410 – 192.505​​) the public has the right to inspect and copy certain public records. The law also states that certain records are confidential and therefore exempt from public disclosure (ORS 192.501​).

Based on the extent of your request, we may determine that a cost estimate should be prepared. If so, we will provide a written estimate of the fee.
