How do I obtain a copy of a public record in Modesto?
To review or receive a copy of a public record, you must first make a request to the City Clerk's Office or the City department that has the records you are interested in reviewing. For example, if you are interested in reviewing a copy of a report from the Department of Public Works, you should direct your request to that Department.
