The City Clerk’s Office will "promptly" respond to your request. Requests are generally completed within 10 business days. However, requests may exceed the 10 business days depending on the amount of information you have requested, but you will receive notification from us by the 10th business day informing you if more time is required to comply with your request or if a request for an Attorney General Opinion is necessary.
