The California Public Records Act provides the public with important rights to obtain access to records held by public agencies in the State. Public records are open to inspection during the office hours of City Hall and every person has a right to inspect public records, except as provided for by law. You have the right to a copy of any identifiable public record.

The City of Clayton requires public records requests to be submitted in writing to the City Clerk in order to assist staff in responding efficiently to your request.

There may be occasions when it is impractical to provide an immediate copy for review or duplication; therefore, you will be notified of the time delay within ten days. If, for some reason your public records request cannot be granted, you will be notified within ten days of the receipt of the request, pursuant to Government Code §7920.
