Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires that all public bodies make their records available to the public, subject to certain exemptions. To make a request to inspect or copy public records, a FOIA request should be submitted to a designated FOIA Officer. The directory of designated FOIA Officers is included below and is listed by department. If you are not sure what department to submit your request to, you may submit it to any one of the designated FOIA Officers and he/she will forward it to the appropriate department or departments.

 

 

FOIA Request Form - General

General FOIA requests should be hand-delivered or sent to Park Ridge City Hall, Attn: Deputy City Clerk, 505 Butler Place, Park Ridge, Illinois 60068, faxed to 847/318-5300, or emailed to the Deputy City Clerk.

 

 

FOIA Request Form - Police

  • Deny the request, or part of the request, and state the reasons for denial.

 

You have the right to appeal any denial to the Public Access Counselor of the Illinois Attorney General’s Office at 500 South Second Street, Springfield, Illinois 62706 or to the circuit court.
