    Open Records Request

    Request A Record
    Records not available on the City's web site may be available for copying or viewing by contacting the City Clerk at (913) 742-6014. The City Clerk serves as the City’s Freedom of Information Officer.

    An Open Records Request Form (pdf) may be required depending upon the information requested. Please be as specific as possible when making the request. The more specific a request is the easier it is for City staff to respond. Most requests are processed within 3 business days. Completed requests can be E-Mailed to the City Clerk.

    Although every attempt will be made to provide information requested, it is not always possible. There are a number of reasons why a request may be denied.

    • The specific record requested does not exist;
    • The request was unclear and should be resubmitted with more detail;
    • The record requested is closed to protect an important privacy interest;
    • The requestor intends to use the record or information for the purpose of selling or offering for sale any property or service in violation of K.S.A. 45-230.

    Written notification will be provided if there is a delay or if the request cannot be fulfilled.

    The City charges a fee for to cover the cost of staff time required to make requested information available and for the cost of copying or reproducing records. Generally, the charge is $0.25 per page. Meeting minutes and agendas are available at no charge. A detailed list of open records fees can be found in the City's Open Records Policy, Policy Statement No. 15.
