FOIA request

Freedom to request information.

Pursuant to 1976 PA 442, as amended.

Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), MCL 15.231 et seq, provides that certain persons can receive copies or make inspections of most public records of public bodies upon written request. The person must sufficiently describe the records he or she seeks. The public body may charge a fee to cover the cost of complying with a person’s FOIA request.

Requests must be completed in full. FOIA creates the right to inspect, copy, or receive copies of public records in a timely manner.
