As a result of the current COVID-19 outbreak, both the City and the Clerk's Office are following federal, state, and local guidelines and practicing social distancing and teleworking for our employees as much as possible.  As a result, and due to the fact that many City records are not available for us to access electronically from home, it may take more time to process your public records request. 

Your requests are important to us, and we ask that you have patience with us as we work to provide you with the information you need in the most efficient way possible under the circumstances.
