The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a state statute (5 ILCS 140) that allows the public to access government documents and records. The law provides that a person can ask a public body for a copy of its records on a specific subject, and the public body must provide those records unless there is an exemption in the statute that protects those records from disclosure (for example, records containing information concerning trade secrets or personal privacy). More information on the FOIA statute is available on theIllinois Attorney General's Website
The Village permits access to public records in compliance with the FOIA statute. The request must be submitted in writing containing your name, address, date of request, phone number, and exactly what you are requesting. Please make sure your request for information is as specific as possible.REQUEST RESPONSE TIME
Requests will be responded to within five (5) business days after the Village receives the request. An additional five (5) business days may be required for requests requiring additional consultation. If so, the Village's designated FOIA Officer will notify you.
