Requests For Public Records
The City of Highland Park Rules and Regulations for the Implementation of the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (the FOIA Rules) provide comprehensive procedures, instructions and forms for obtaining City public records. This is only a brief summary of the FOIA Rules.

All requests to inspect, copy or certify public records must be submitted to the City in writing and in the form required by the FOIA Rules using the form located here. The City will respond to each proper written request to inspect, copy or certify public records within five business days after receipt of the request.

Copy Fees
Copies of public records will be provided only upon payment of a copying fee as provided in Section 35.100 of the Highland Park Code of 1968, as amended (adopted by Ordinance 70-09 - Exhibit I). Copies of public records will not be mailed except upon prepayment of a fee equal to the actual cost of postage and copying.
