The goal of the City’s Records Management Program is to provide the public with open and transparent access to all public records, with the exception of those records exempt from disclosure by express provisions of law or considered confidential or privileged under the law.  To meet this goal, we are committed to providing reasonable access to all public records and continually strive to make it easier and quicker to get the information you are seeking by regularly adding public records to the City's weblink portal.  

A variety of City records are available online and can be accessed through our WebLink portal. Quick links to some of our most frequently requested records can also be accessed below.
