Public Records Request
In order to best serve the public and be as expedient as possible in processing requests for public records, all requests to examine or copy public records MUST BE IN WRITING.
We will respond to all written requests within three (3) business days after the request is received, or we will inform you if more time is needed. Pursuant to Idaho Code Title 74, Chapter 1, a response may take up to (10) business days. Business days are Monday-Friday 8:00 am-5:00 pm. All requests received after normal business hours (excluding holidays) shall be deemed received the next business day.
Pursuant to Idaho State Code Chapter 3, Title 9, public record requests may be subject to a copy and/or processing fee, which may be required prior to receipt of record(s). In accordance with Idaho Code, the City of Caldwell requires payment upfront for public records requests to recover actual labor and copying costs if (a) the request is for more than one hundred (100) pages of paper records; or (b) the actual labor associated with responding to requests for public records (in compliance with the Public Records Act) exceeds two (2) hours.
Please complete the entire form. Failure to complete the document may lead to the inability to provide the information you have requested. Please be very specific about the type of records you are requesting. Provide as much information as possible so that a thorough search of the record is possible.
