All records of the City of Twinsburg are public unless they are specifically exempt from disclosure under the Ohio Revised Code. According to Ohio Revised Code, "Record" includes any document - paper, electronic including email, or other formats that are created or received by, or comes under the jurisdiction of a public office that documents the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the office.
No specific language is required to make a request, but the requestor must identify records with sufficient clarity to allow the office to identify, retrieve and review the records. If it is not clear what records are being sought, the record custodian will ask the requester for clarification and assist the requester in revising the request by informing them of the manner in which the office maintains and accesses its records. The requester need not put a request in writing, or provide his or her identity or the intended use of the requested records. It is this office's general policy that this information should not be requested.
Please understand that some records are exempt from mandatory disclosure under Ohio law, while other records may be produced with certain portions redacted in accordance with the law. Moreover, the law only requires the production of existing records and does not require new records to be created.
Public records requests could be made through the Clerks Office by one of the following methods.
