In accordance with the Michigan Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the County provides copies of its public records. Records which are exempt from disclosure by state or federal law will not be provided. You are encouraged to check the County’s website to see if the record you wish to obtain is available on-line.

The FOIA does not require governmental bodies to create new records or answer questions. A request must ask for records or information already in existence. A person has the right to subscribe to future issuance of public records that are created, issued or disseminated on a regular basis.

The County will respond within five business days to a request. If needed, the County may issue a notice extending for up to 10 additional business days the time it has to respond to your request.
