Access to Public Information
Indiana's Access to Public Records Act (APRA) was enacted to to permit the citizens of Indiana broad and easy access to public records. By providing the public with the opportunity to review and copy public records, the APRA gives individuals the opportunity to obtain information relating to their government and to more fully participate in the governmental process.
For the purposes of the APRA, the clerk-treasurer is the Town's public records officer and all requests should be filed with that office. If a request is made in person or by phone, the clerk-treasurer will respond within one calendar day. If a request is made by mail or email, a response will be issued within seven calendar days. If the requested public record is available, it will be provided within a reasonable amount of time.
