Public Records Request Form (General Requests)

Complete this form to request a public record for general City matters. Please use the correct corresponding form for Police, 911, Engineering, Planning or Building matters to facilitate the fastest possible response.

Routine requests are handled in cooperation with City departments. More complex written requests are forwarded to the City Attorney for response. The City's response is pursuant to the City of Lake Oswego’s policy for requests, inspection and copying of City Records. A copy of the policy is available for your review. In most cases, there is a fee charged for providing this service. Fees are set by the City's adopted Master Fees and Charges. The City Recorder provides an estimate of the fee associated with your request; payment of the fee for filling your request must be received before records are released.

If any portion of the requested materials are not provided or are redacted, the requester may seek review of the City’s determination pursuant to ORS 192.450, 192.460, 192.465, 192.480 and 192.490.
