Open Records Request

The Georgia Open Records Act (O.C.G.A. §50-18-70) declares that public access to public records should be encouraged to foster confidence in government and so that the public can evaluate the expenditure of public funds and the efficient and proper functioning of its institutions. These public records should be made available for public inspection without delay.
