In accordance with the Michigan Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the County provides copies of its public records. The core purpose of FOIA is to provide the public with information regarding the inner workings of Government and actions of Government Officials. It is not intended to provide access to information of a personal nature about individuals. With this in mind, some materials may be exempt from disclosure by state or federal law.

The County will respond within five business days to a request. This response may include an extension of ten business days as allowed under the Act.

In order to respond to a request we require contact information, including a name. If you wish to remain anonymous, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section.
