Public Records Request

In order to respond promptly, requests for public records should be submitted to the Public Records Division via e-mail to publicrecords@miamigov.com.

Please be specific when requesting records. For electronic records, key words and search terms that are not specific may result in responses that contain thousands of documents. All public records requests should be placed in a timely manner, to allow a reasonable amount of time to locate and gather the documents and be able to receive the requested information by deadline.

 Requests for comments or other press related questions should still be sent to Communications@miamigov.com.

Copies of ordinances, official agendas and meeting minutes are available through the City Clerk's Office.
