Request for Government Records


A request for access to or for a copy of Government Records should be submitted on the form below, which has been adopted by the Municipal Clerk as the Custodian of Records.  Some records will be immediately available during normal business hours.  Some records will require time to compile and to make the copies requested, but will normally be available during normal business hours and within seven (7) business days.  If any document or copy which has been requested is not a public record or cannot be provided within the seven (7) business days, you will be provided with a response with that information within the seven (7) business days.  Some records requested have specific fees or other response times established by statute.  There is no fee involved in simply inspecting a document during normal business hours which are Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 4:00 pm. 

In general:

The term “public records” generally includes those records determined to be public in accordance with N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.  The term does not include employee personnel files, police investigation records, public assistance files or other matters in which there is a right of privacy or confidentiality or inter-agency or intra-agency advisory, consultative, or deliberative material or other material which is specifically exempted by law.
