The Freedom of Information Law provides rights of access to records reflective of governmental decisions and policies that affect the lives of every New Yorker. However an agency does not have to create a new document in order to provide the individual the requested information.
The request for information if possible should supply dates, titles, file designation, or any other information that will help find the requested records.
Within 5 business days of the receipt of a written, online or emailed request for a record reasonably described, the agency must make the record available, deny access in writing giving the reasons for denial, or furnish a written acknowledgment of receipt of the request and a statement of the approximate date when the request will be granted or denied.
Records can be obtained from the Town by submitting the request in writing either by mail or in-person at the Town Clerk’s office.
