Public Information Act


Does the county have to fulfill redundant open records requests from a requestor?

No, pursuant to Government Code §552.232. If a person requests information the county has previously provided to that person, the county may certify that fact to the requestor rather than producing the information again. This procedure is not available if there have been additions, deletions, or corrections to the information since the county received the previous request. For more information, see our handbook Public Information Act.
