Florida Records Law
The Florida Public Records Law, Chapter 119, F.S., requires that all state, county and municipal records, except certain confidential or exempt records, will be open for personal inspection by any citizen. The right to examine or to obtain copies of public records is limited to reasonable times of day (i.e. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and under reasonable conditions. Prior to viewing by the public, the agency must make sure that no confidential or exempt information is disclosed. Confidential / exempt information will be removed or redacted from the file. 

This notice is posted in accordance with F.S. 119.12

Email Addresses
Under Florida Law, email addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
