Do I have to make my request in writing?
No. You may make an oral or written request, in person or through the mail. However, we recommend that you put your request in writing so there is a clear record of your request. In addition, a written request that includes your contact information can help facilitate the City’s response to your request. A written request that is clear and concise also helps the custodian to respond to your request in a timely and efficient manner.
