More About Public Records Requests

Service Charges
If the nature or volume of public records requested to be inspected, examined, or copied requires extensive use of information technology resources or clerical or supervisory assistance by personnel of the agency involved, the agency may charge, in addition to the actual cost of duplication, a reasonable service charge.

As a public agency, the City of Parkland is required to abide by Florida Statute provisions. The City complies with the letter and spirit of the statute, and these guidelines establish procedures for handling public records requests. Most city records, with few exceptions, are public information and open for the public's inspection.
 
Responses
Guidelines for responding to public records requests are intended to specify the responsibility of each city employee, the responsibility of the City, and the process to be undertaken when public records requests are filed. These guidelines have been developed to ensure the City responds to public records requests in an accurate, timely, consistent, and open manner.

Procedures
Copies of city documents covered by the public records statute may be obtained by submitting your request to the City Clerk's Office either by phone at (954) 757-4133, by fax (954) 341-5161, by Email or in person at,
