Public Records Request

Public records are available for the community to view during regular business hours. The City has also created an electronic data management system so the public can view City Council, Traffic, and Planning Commission meeting agenda packets and minutes, as well as, the City's Annual Budget Bids/Proposals, and other public City documents. These documents are accessible to the public at anytime from the comfort of a home or work computer.

In addition to the California Public Records Act found at Government Code §6250 et seq., which guarantees the public access to information concerning the conduct of the people's business, the City has also implemented a citywide Request Policy to ensure requests are fulfilled in a timely and efficient manner.

The City wants to make sure that all request are handled in a prompt and appropriate manner and asks the public to complete a Public Records Request Form which may be faxed at (626) 307-9218 or mailed to 8838 E. Valley Boulevard, Rosemead, California 91770; copies are provided at $0.20 per page.
