Public Records Requests

A “Public record” is any record that serves to document the organization, policies, functions, decisions, procedures and other activities of the Council and the City’s administrative offices, boards and committees, and is determined by an “actual use” standard. The City follows the definition of public record contained in Ohio Revised Code Section 149.43(A) and the same exceptions outlined in that Section apply.

Any person may make a request for public records, but the requester must specify with reasonable clarity the records he or she is seeking. The request should not be overly broad, and should describe the records being sought with specificity and particularity. If the requester asks for copies of records, the requester must pay the cost of duplication and any mailing costs before the records are delivered.

To make a public records request, please contact the Law Director by letter, phone, email, or in person. The Law Director can be reached at:

Ms. Lynnette Dinkler
Law Director
City of Franklin

Franklin, OH 45005
