Pursuant to Florida Statutes Chapter 119, municipal records are open for personal inspection and copying by any person. Providing access to public records is a duty of each agency. Chapter 257.36 (5)(a) requires the designation of a Records Management Liaison Officer. The City Clerk is designated as the Records Management Liaison Officer for the City of Tamarac, and the Clerk's Office is the central point of contact for public records requests. The City Clerk shall coordinate public records requests to assure that the information is collected and provided to the requester in a timely manner.
The City Clerk’s Office will acknowledge receipt of a request within one day and advise the requestor that the City Clerk’s Office will provide a cost estimate, if any, for fulfillment of the request.
