One of the choices is to "inspect the records". What does this mean?
All citizens have the right to look at public records and it is not always necessary to make copies. The City is committed to using sustainable practices and tries to make copies only when necessary. Inspecting records first may also reduce your costs if, by reviewing, you are able to better pinpoint what you need or are able to satisfy your need by simply reading the records. Please note that the law does exempt some records or information from being shared; if you request information that is in this category, some records may not be available for inspection and you will be notified.
