Public Records Request

All requests for public records should be directed to the City Clerk’s Office. Requests for public records should be in writing and should be as specific as possible. While it is not mandatory to make a formal written request, having a completed Request for Public Records form allows the City Clerk’s Office to respond in a timely manner. You can submit the form via email, fax, or to City Hall, City Clerk's Office - 3rd Floor.

Public Records Request process due to COVID-19

Due to the Federal, State and Local emergency declarations and the Los Angeles County’s “Safer at Home” order, Downey City Hall is closed to the public.

The Downey City Clerk’s Office will continue to accept and process Public Records Requests via the following methods:

Fax: (562) 923-6388;


Mail: Downey City Clerk’s Office, 11111 Brookshire Ave. Downey, CA 90241; and,

Telephone: (562) 904-7280.

There will be no in-person requests for records, pick up, or record inspection.

Inspection and production of records is being postponed 30 to 45 days depending on when the emergency declarations are lifted. The City Clerk’s Office will contact you as soon as records pertaining to your Public Records Request are ready.

Records that are readily available will be emailed or mailed to the requestor upon receipt of fees for duplication of records.

 If you would like to submit a Public Records Request electronically please complete the Public Records Request Form.

Who can initiate a Public Records request?

Anyone may initiate a request for public records.

What type of information can I request?
Public Records requests may be used to obtain “agency records,” which include a wide variety of documents and other materials (including print, photographic, and electronic formats) that were created or obtained by a city agency and are, at the time the request is filed, in the department’s possession and control. The Public Records Act excludes certain categories of records from disclosure, including materials related to internal agency rules, proprietary business information, inter- and intra-agency communications that are protected by legal privileges, and personal privacy.

Some commonly requested items include:

How soon must a city agency respond to my request?
A city agency receiving a request for documents under the Public Records Act has ten days in which to respond to the request.

How much will I be charged for my request?
Fees for copies are $0.60 cents for the first page and $0.10 for each additional page. If the record is maintain and available in electronic format the records will be emailed to you at no charge.
