Public Records Requests


Public Records Requests are supervised by the City Clerk's Office yet the process is decentralized. Therefore, you are encouraged to make your request with the department that maintains the respective record. If your request involves multiple departments, please contact the City Clerk's Office for coordination at (954) 457-1340.

Visit the city’s public records portal below to submit a new public records requesttrack the status of your request. You may also search the records archive to view and download previously requested records without submitting a new request.

To better serve you, please include a detailed description of what you are asking for. 
(Name, Address, and other contact information are optional.)
    
Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact the city by phone or in writing.
