City of the Village of Clarkston follows the State of Michigan Freedom of Information Act Policy and Procedures.

Request a Document

Records regarding City business are always available to the public. If you would like to request a document simply fill out a Freedom of Information Act Form. This form will be submitted to the Clerk's Office for review. 

Or, if you prefer, you can download a copy of the FOIA Request form and mail, fax, or email the Clerk.

Please Note:  There has been a ruling by the Michigan Supreme Court that changes the time frame municipalities must respond to a FOIA request.  


Fee for FOIA Request

The City Clerk will review your request and then provide an estimate of your FOIA cost, if any, via email, fax or mail. Please respond to the Clerk advising you are willing to pay the amount quoted.


If you would like to review the current expenses that may apply, you can download the Freedom of Information Act Request Itemized Cost Worksheet, which is the worksheet the Clerk will use to calculate your fees.
