Public Records

Public Records Requests

With certain exceptions, records of the Town are public records to which the public is entitled access.  Pursuant to the Public Records Act (California Government Code Section 6250, et seq.), a person may request to review and/or receive a copy of any public record.  The Town Clerk's Office is responsible for receiving and responding to requests for public records.  You may email the Town Clerk to submit a request or for more information.

The Town will provide the requested documents within 10 days or advise you, in writing, of any exemption from disclosure or delay in providing the information and when it will be made available.  Requests that are not exempt from disclosure that require research, retrieval, and reproduction will be provided at the earliest date possible.  

There is no charge to review public records.  There are fees associated with obtaining copies of records.  The fees are established by Resolution and vary depending upon the type of record and the method in which the record is provided.  

The Marin County Clerk Recorder's Division maintains vital documents (birth, death, and marriage) and recorded documents affecting real property.  The Recorder's office is located at the Civic Center in San Rafael, 3501 Civic Center Drive.  For further information, call (415) 473-7215, or visit their website.
