Records Request Form

Records Request Form

Oregon's open government laws promote democracy by ensuring that all state, regional and local governments conduct their business with transparency. Oregon citizens have a right to know how their government is spending their tax dollars and exercising the powers granted by the people.

The City of Medford as per Oregon Revised Statues 192.410 defines a public record as any writing containing information relating to the conduct of the public's business, prepared, owned, used or retained by a public body regardless of physical form or characteristics.  The state statue further defines public records as any "writing as handwriting, typewriting, printing, photostatting, photographic, and every means of recordings of any type, which includes letters, words, pictures, sounds or symbols, or any combination thereof, and all papers, maps, magnetic or paper tapes, photographic films and prints, discs, drums or other documents."

Thank you for using our online request form.  We will respond to you promptly.  If you have any questions, please contact the City Recorder at (541)774-2017.

 

The legislature has recognized certain exceptions to the general policy of transparency, including, but not limited to, protecting the privacy of citizens whose confidential records are held by the government, and protecting public safety by exempting from disclosure documents that would reveal security measures and investigatory documents that could compromise criminal investigations if disclosed.
