Public Records Request

Request for Public Records

All records maintained by the City of Aberdeen are available for public inspection unless specifically exempted by law. You are entitled to access public records, and to copies of those records under reasonable conditions, upon paying the costs of making the copy.

In most cases, you do not have to explain why you want the records. However, specific information may be necessary to process your request. We may require information necessary to establish if disclosure would violate certain provisions of law.

The more precisely you can identify the record you seek, the more responsive we can be. The City of Aberdeen provides access to existing public records in its possession; however, the City is not required to collect information or organize data to create a record not existing at the time of the request.
