Record Creation & Redaction

Record Creation

In the course of responding to a request for access, an agency shall not be required to create a record that does not currently exist or to compile, maintain, format, or organize a record in a manner in which the agency does not currently compile, maintain, format, or organize the record.


The County will grant access to public records according to this policy and will separate and exclude any records which are not public records or which are otherwise excluded or exempted from the definition of public records. If information which is not subject to access is an integral part of a public record and cannot be separated, the County shall redact that information. Only information subject to the act will be included in the response.
