Who We Are

Freedom of Information Act

Request for Public Records

We maintain a comprehensive set of procedures, instructions and forms for requesting public records in accordance with our FOIA rules and regulations.

To inspect or obtain copies of public records, a written request must be submitted to our FOIA Officer. We encourage you to use our request form which you can either download or obtain by stopping by our General Offices in Libertyville. We will review all written requests regardless of the form submitted.

Requests can be emailed, faxed, or mailed anytime, or delivered to our General Offices, 8 am–4:30 pm, weekdays. Directions

We will review all requests and respond in a manner consistent with the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. Copying and mailings fees may apply as provided for in Section IV of the FOIA rules and regulations.
