Public Records Requests

Records Requests
The City Clerk’s Office manages the legislative history of the city, and maintains and preserves official city documents and records in accordance with Federal and State legal mandates and local policies.

  • Ordinances

Questions regarding open records should be directed to the City Clerk’s Office.

Applicable Fees

The Missouri Sunshine Law authorizes public agencies to charge fees for providing access to or furnishing copies of public records. This fee may be requested in advance and may include the cost of staff time required to make the information available as well as the cost of copying or reproducing the records.
