Open Public Records Act Request
Some records may be immediately available during normal business hours. Some records may require time to compile and to make the copies requested, but should normally be available during normal business hours and within seven (7) business days. If any document or copy which has been requested is not a public record or cannot be provided within the seven (7) business days, you will be provided with a response with that information within the seven (7) business days.
Some records requested have specific fees or other response times established by law, regulation, or Executive Order. There is no fee involved in simply inspecting a document during normal business hours. In general:

A person who is denied access to a government record by the custodian of the records, at the option of the requestor, may: 1) institute a proceeding to challenge the custodian’s decision by filing an action in Superior Court which shall be heard in the vicinage where it is filed or 2) in lieu of filing an action in Superior Court, file a complaint with the Government Records Council established in the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs. The right to institute any proceeding under this section shall be solely that of the requestor.
