Open Records Requests
The City of Peachtree City recognizes that it is conducting the public’s business, and is entrusted with documents and information belonging to the public. Many documents, such as City Council meeting minutes, are available on this web site. Often, citizens with questions do not need to file an open records request, and can call or email City Hall to obtain the information they are seeking. However, sometimes a formal Open Records Request is necessary.
Per state law, the City charges for staff time and copies associated with an Open Records Request. If you submit an Open Records Request, an estimate will be provided to you prior to incurring any costs, and you will be given the opportunity to accept the costs or modify your request to reduce the charges.

You may email the request to the City Clerk’s Office - list the documents you are requesting and provide your name and contact information. When listing documents, please be as specific as possible to avoid excess costs.
The City has three business days to determine if requested document are open records and to provide access to the documents, or to provide a time schedule for making them available. The City will provide open records as quickly as possible.
