Public Records Request

The goal of the City Clerk's Office is to provide the public with quick and easy access to public information and records.  To meet this goal, we continually strive to make it easier and quicker to get the information you are seeking by constantly adding public records on the City's website and by using the latest technology to digitally store and retrieve documents in our office.  If you are unsure exactly what document you are looking for, the City Clerk will help you ascertain what you need and determine the quickest way for you to get the information. 

Ca PUBLIC RECORDs act 
The California Public Records Act (California Government Code §6250 et. seq.) provides the public with important rights to obtain access to records held by public agencies in the state. The City of Bradbury is committed to providing reasonable access to all public records, with the exception of those documents exempt from disclosure by express provisions of law or considered confidential or privileged under the law.  

TRANSMITTAL AND COST 

  1. Responses will generally be mailed or emailed. 
  2. The City of Bradbury charges 10 cents per page for copies (including copies that are made for email). 
  3. If the copying charges are $5 or less, we will provide the documents at no charge.
  4. The City of Bradbury charges $5 per CD for electronic versions of certain documents (if available in electronic form).

TIMING 

Our practice is to strive to fully comply with the request within ten calendar days. If this is not possible, the City Clerk will notify you with an estimate of the date the records will be made available.  The 10-day response period starts with the first calendar day after the date of receipt. If the request is received after 5pm on a weekday, or on a weekend or holiday, the next business day will be considered the date of receipt.
