Request Policies

All public records, which are not confidential or privileged, are available for public inspection and/or copying during normal office hours. Requests for inspection should be made to the head of the department listed, or his/her designee, and may be made either orally or in writing. If the records request is denied, any oral request for information may be denied orally and any written request will be denied in writing with a full statement of the reason(s) for such denial.

Any person may request the advice of the State of Wisconsin Attorney General as to the right to inspect public records and property under any circumstances. A copy charge of 25 cents per page is applicable for each page that is copied or reproduced on Village copiers, plus the costs of locating, mailing, transcribing, and/or tape transfer, if applicable. Requests whose total cost exceeds $5 may require pre-payment. Requests will be filled as soon as practicable and without delay.

If there is any public record or information which you cannot determine the location of, or if you need assistance in locating the person or department in charge of that record, the Village Clerk will assist you with your inquiry.
