What happens if my Request has Exceptions to the Act?

The city believes in open government and strives to fulfill all open records requests. Although most government information is available to you, some exceptions exist. If an exception might apply and the city wishes to withhold the information, then the city generally must, within ten business days of receiving the open records request, refer the
matter to the Office of the Attorney General for a ruling on whether an exception applies.

If the Office of the Attorney General rules that an exception applies, the city will not release the information.
